SDCC 2019: TBS’s ‘Snowpiercer’ Series Trailer: Next Stop, A Frozen Post-Apocalyptic Dystopia
  |  @   |  

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.

‘Snowpiercer’ TV Show Gets A Season 2 A Year Before Season 1 Premiere
  |  @   |  

It was three and a half years ago now that we found out that a TV series based on the Bong Joon-ho movie Snowpiercer could 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 star Daveed 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.

DVD Review: ‘Secret Diary of a Call Girl’ Season 1

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).
