Deadline is reporting that Chelsea Harris has signed up for a key recurring role for the upcoming television series adaptation of Snowpiercer at TNT.
The official synopsis for the series is as follows:
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.
Chelsea Harris (whose credits include Designated Survivor and Station 19) will be playing the role of Sykes. A covert operative, and the right-hand advisor to an important new leader, Sykes is reserved and coolly efficient. She is well-versed in the dark arts of intelligence and, while she seems loyal, one begins to wonder whether she can be trusted at all.
The Snowpiercer series has already been renewed for a second season and Chelsea Harris joins a cast that includes Daveed Diggs, Jennifer Connelly, Mickey Sumner, Annalise Basso, Sasha Frolova, Alison Wright, Benjamin Haigh, Roberto Urbina, Katie McGuinness, Susan Park, Sam Otto, Sheila Vand, Lena Hall, Iddo Goldberg, Jaylin Fletcher, Steve Ogg, Timothy V. Murphy, Happy Anderson, Jonathan Lloyd Walker, Aleks Paunovic, Shaun Toub, Kerry O’Malley, Aaron Glenane, Fiona Vroom and Rowan Blanchard.
Snowpiercer will premiere on TNT in Spring 2020.
