Set more than seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland, Snowpiercer centers on the remnants of humanity who inhabit a 1001 car, perpetually-moving train that circles the globe. Class warfare, social injustice and the politics of survival play out in this riveting television adaptation, based on the acclaimed movie and graphic novel series of the same name. TBS offers a brand-new sneak peek of the highly anticipated post-apocalyptic sci-fi thriller coming this spring, along with a panel featuring stars Jennifer Connelly, Daveed Diggs, Alison Wright, Mickey Sumner, Lena Hall, Steven Ogg and EP / showrunner Graeme Manson.
After lighting up movie screens with films like Super Troopers, Club Dread and Beerfest, Broken Lizard’s Kevin Heffernan and Steve Lemme have translated their brand of comedy to the small screen with Tacoma FD, a new breakout comedy on truTV about the fun and hijinks that take place inside a firehouse in one of the wettest cities in America. Join Heffernan and Lemme – along with series co-stars Eugene Cordero (Black Monday,The Good Place), Marcus Henderson (Get Out, Snowfall), Gabriel Hogan (Condor) and Hassie Harrison (Southbound, The Iron Orchard) – as they reveal all of the “behind-the-mustache” secrets about making films, the genesis of their first TV series, what happened when they met the REAL Tacoma FD and what’s on tap for season two!
Since 2016, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee has been leading the late-night zeitgeist of political satire and social commentary with new inventive delivery, formats and technology! Just before this landmark Emmy-winning show premiered, Samantha took to the NYCC stage to give a special sneak peek of her show for the NYCC audience in fall 2015. Now four years later, she is excited to return to NYCC with a panel that will tease next year’s biggest blockbuster yet: “Election 2020.” Full Frontal airs Wednesdays at 10:30pm ET/PT on TBS.
