San Diego Comic-Con is the perfect place to reveal the first trailer for the TBS adaptation of Snowpiercer, based on Bong Joon-ho‘s 2014 sci-fi film – which happens to be an adaptation of the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige.
Snowpiercer is set years after the world has become a frozen wasteland, and centers on the last of humanity, who inhabit a train which has over 1,000 cars and never stops. It stars Hamilton‘s Daveed Diggs as the series protagonist, who will lead his fellow tail car passengers in a revolt against the high-class front car passengers. Check out the trailer below.
It was three and a half years ago now that we found out that a TV series based on the Bong Joon-ho movie Snowpiercercould be on the way. That TV show has traveled a slow road since then. A couple of years back we found out that the series would starDaveed Diggs and Academy Award winner Jennifer Connelly. Last year we found out that TNT had given the show a full series order.
Now the Snowpiercer adaptation has a new home, moving from TNT to sister channel TBS, and has been given a second season. One whole year before its debut season even premieres.
Secret Diary of a Call Girl Season 1
Starring Billie Piper, Iddo Goldberg
Lionsgate Home Entertainment
Release Date: January 6, 2009
If you’re a dedicated geek with a penchant for overseas sci-fi, then you’re more than familiar with Billie Piper, the one-time U.K. pop singer who co-starred in the BBC’s relaunching of Doctor Who. If that’s the case, do away with your image of Piper as a flirty, adventurous companion to the Doctor and get ready for Piper as a flirty, adventurous, companion to anyone who can afford her.
As the lead in Showtime’s Secret Diary of a Call Girl, Piper plays Hannah, your average well-to-do London girl whose nights working as a “legal secretary” conceal a seedier truth: she’s a high-class, high-priced hooker named Belle. But that’s not much of a secret considering the title. In fact, the eight short episodes (about 23 minutes each) that comprise this first season collection are less about secrets than they are stand-alone sex stories centered around Hannah’s less-than-shocking confessions. Each of the episodes is fairly formulaic: Hannah talks to friend Ben on the phone, Hannah has a client situation that’s outside the norm, Hannah realizes why things are hard for her, Hannah has sex, Ben and Hannah argue and/or make-up, and Hannah puts something in her mouth (at some point).
