The long-gestating "Snowpiercer" series is on the move.

The move to TBS comes despite the fact that for the past several years, TBS has defined itself as a comedy brand with shows like "The Last OG", "Search Party", and "Angie Tribeca", the last of which was recently canceled.

"Snowpiercer is the flawless show to kick-off TBS' entry into dramas with intricate storytelling, stunning visuals and first-class acting", said Brett Weitz, TBS and TNT's General Manager.

The small screen version of Snowpiercer is set to premiere on TBS next spring.

Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson is set to co-direct the first episode of Snowpiercer with James Hawes, who previously worked on TNT's The Alienist with Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins.

"We believe in the longevity of this series and that audiences will be amazed by the fantastical world that brings to life such relevant social, political and environmental issues", he added. The first was written by Graeme Manson (Orphan Black), who will also served as executive producer and showrunner.

The series is "Set more than seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland, Snowpiercer centers on the remnants of humanity, who inhabit a enormous, perpetually-moving train that circles the globe".

The Snowpiercer series has been renewed for a second season ahead of its debut.

Snowpiercer is based on the comic book series of the same name (and the 2013 film adaptation).

In addition to Connelly and Diggs, Season 1 of Snowpiercer stars Alison Wright (The Americans), Mickey Sumner (Frances Ha), Susan Park (Ghostbusters), Iddo Goldberg (Peaky Blinders), Katie McGuinness (Dirty Filthy Love), Lena Hall (Hedwig and the Angry Inch), Annalise Basso (Bedtime Stories), Sam Otto (Jellyfish), Roberto Urbina (Narcos), Sheila Vand (Argo) and Jaylin Fletcher (Saturday Church).

Morgan and Haddish will return for the third season, as well as series regulars Ryan Gaul, Allen Maldonado, Taylor Mosby and Dante Hoagland.
