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.
Maybe the only thing better than San Diego Comic-Con is the annual tradition of Conan O’Brien doing his show from San Diego with big time guests and surprises. Yesterday marked the beginning of the 4-day geekfest, and Conan was on his way south with co-host Andy Richter driving. Then came the music dispute. Andy only had a tape with one song, “Sexy and I Know It” by LMFAO. Andy wanted his song repeatedly for the 2+ hour drive, Conan was ready to toss the tape. Andy tossed Conan.
Check out where he ended up before SDCC 2017 below.
But last night he hosted two of my favorite shows, The Walking Dead and Game Of Thrones. Danai Gurira (Michonne), Steven Yeun (Glenn), and Norman Reedus (Daryl) from The Walking Dead visited the Conan set and had a grand old time.
