NBC drops "Emerald City", a Wizard of Oz themed drama!
Friedman is not unfamiliar to the universe of "The Wizard of Oz" and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles contains a lot of references to L. Frank Baum's book.

'Snowpiercer' Being Adapted For TV With Josh Friedman
The 2013 Korean feature film is being adapted as a TV series with Josh Friedman (Sarah Connor Chronicles, War of the Worlds) attached to pen the script for Tomorrow Studios, which has optioned the rights to the film.
The potential series will be based on the 2013 film that was written and directed by Bong Joon Ho in his first English-language production. The movie, which starred Chris Evans and Tilda Swinton is set in a post-apocalyptic Ice Age where the only remaining life on the planet survives aboard a train that travels around the globe. Bong and feature co-producer Dooho Choi are attached to executive produce alongside Adelstein and producing partner Becky Clements. Chan-wook Park, who produced the feature, is also attached as an EP.
The feature was released in June 2014 and grossed $4.5 million domestically en route to a $86.8 million worldwide cume after being released on video on demand after only two weeks in release.
"We are very excited to be working with Josh on this incredible story,"Adelstein said. "As such a prolific and innovative writer he is the ideal person to create a massive new world in this adaptation. This is an expansive, high-concept project and we are thrilled to be a part of reimagining it for television."
For Friedman, Snowpiercer marks his latest TV gig. His credits include NBC's pirate drama Crossbones, comic book adaptation Locke & Key (which did not move beyond the pilot at Fox) and the upcoming Wizard of Oz-themed mini Emerald City.
"I couldn't be more excited for the opportunity, "Friedman said. "Marty and Becky are the perfect partners to help me bring this world to TV. I'm a huge fan of of director Bong's films, especially Snowpiercer. It's great the way the best sci-fi is great - thoughtful, political, funny, scary and sly. And It's on a train. A big f-ing train. What more could you want?"
Tomorrow studios is a partnership between Adelstein and ITV Studios. Should Snowpiercer find a network home, it would join Adelstein-produced series including ABC's Last Man Standing, NBC's Aquarius and MTV's Teen Wolf.
I quite enjoyed the movie i thought it managed to capture the sci-fi spirit of humanity loosing the battle against itself, not by war, but maybe just by human nature.
I suppose if the project gets the go-ahead with Josh Friedman involved who knows he might just give a wink to 'Summer to see if she fancies a trip on a train!

"Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles" creator and "Avatar 3" scribe Josh Friedman has been hired to write and executive produce a TV series adaptation of Hugh Howey's sci-fi adventure novel "Beacon 23" for Studio 8.
The series of five novellas is set in the 23rd Century and follows a shell-shocked former soldier who mans a lighthouse beacon for spaceships. He must face his demons when the beacon fails endangering thousands of lives.
Jeff Robinov will produce.
Possibly could be interesting?

Good for him and he is very capable depicting post apocalyptic themes.
There was a French computer game back in 1993 called "Transarctica", with that theme, based on the post-apocalyptic science fiction novel series La Compagnie des glaces by the French writer Georges-Jean Arnaud.

Jennifer Connelly Joins "Snowpiercer" Series
Jennifer Connelly is set to star opposite Daveed Diggs in the pilot for the "Snowpiercer" TV series adaptation for TNT.
Based on the acclaimed 2013 Bong Joon-ho film, which itself was based on the French comic "Le Transperceneige," the futuristic thriller is set seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland, and the remains of humanity inhabit a gigantic, perpetually moving train that circles the globe. Class warfare, social injustice and the politics of survival are questioned.
Diggs will star as Layton Well, a prisoner barely surviving the harsh conditions in the tail end of the train who becomes a reluctant participant in a struggle that could upend life on the train. Connelly will play Melanie Cavill, a First Class passenger who works as the Voice of the Train - responsible for making the daily announcements over its PA system.
Scott Derrickson ("Doctor Strange") is set to direct the project and serve as an executive producer on the series alongside showrunner Josh Friedman ("Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles").
I enjoyed the movie enough. I'm now curious about the show, now.
