A long time ago (October), in a location far far away (the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City), I was given the opportunity to interact with the star-studded cast of Snowpiercer at New York Comic-Con.
Snowpiercer is a TV adaptation of the 2013 film produced by Parasite director Bong Joon-ho. The TV series is set in 2021, seven years after the world becomes a frozen wasteland and follows the remnants of humanity who inhabit a gigantic, perpetually moving train that circles the globe. The show questions class warfare, social injustice, and the politics of survival.
The TV series stars Jennifer Connelly, Daveed Diggs, Alison Wright, Lena Hall, Mickey Sumner, Steven Ogg, Sheila Vand, and it is produced by Graeme Manson.
Fans may recognize the premise from the 2013 film which followed a group of survivors living in the impoverished “tail end” of the train who stage a revolution and attempt to make their way to the head of the train. Graeme Manson said. “It’s about class, immigration detention, climate; it’s a beautiful existential tapestry we get to work with.”

Check out some photos of the cast! (I normally don’t get starstruck but seeing Daveed Diggs and Jennifer Connelly had me SHOOK, especially when Daveed Diggs sat next to me at the table.)
