Like the 2013 film of the same name (directed by Parasite Academy Award winner Bong Joon-Ho), the series will be set on a massive train, housing by class the sole survivors of a global, apocalyptic Ice Age. Diggs stars as Layton Well, a prisoner-turned-revolutionary fighter against the elites who inhabit the front of the train. Hall plays Sayori, a member of the train’s upper management.
