Netflix has picked up international rights to the futuristic series “Snowpiercer,” which will debut on TNT in the United States, and “Dirty John,” premiering on Bravo domestically.
“Snowpiercer” comes to Netflix through a deal with ITV Studios Global Entertainment. The series, co-produced by Tomorrow Studios and Studio T, will be available to Netflix members globally outside of the U.S. and China in 2019. The series, based on the movie of the same name, stars Jennifer Connelly and Daveed Diggs. Seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland, the remnants of humanity, who inhabit a gigantic, perpetually-moving train that circles the globe, face class warfare, social injustice and the politics of survival.
“Dirty John” is based on the articles and true crime podcast of the same name from Los Angeles Times reporter Christopher Goffard. It follows Debra Newell (Connie Britton) and her romance with John Meehan (Eric Bana), a charmer who sweeps her off her feet and pulls her into his web of lies.
