TNT's highly anticipated post-apocalyptic sci-fi series Snowpiercer stars Oscar® winner Jennifer Connelly and Tony Award® winner Daveed Diggs. Set more than seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland, this futuristic thriller centers on the remnants of humanity who inhabit a perpetually moving train, with 1001 cars, that circles the globe. Class warfare, social injustice, and the politics of survival play out in this riveting television adaptation based on the critically acclaimed graphic novel series and film of the same name from Golden Globe® Award winner and Oscar® nominee Bong Joon Ho (Parasite).

This Episodic Premiere screening of Snowpiercer will feature the Pilot followed by an extended Q&A with select cast and crew.
