“When crafting the marketing campaign for Snowpiercer, we had plans to physically immerse the audience into the world as much as possible,” said Missy Chambless, Executive Vice President of Marketing, TBS, TNT and truTV. “When it became clear we’d have to pivot to a digital approach, we still wanted to enable viewers to dive deeper into the wonder of the show. The 1,001 train car campaign is about extending the series into fans’ homes and bringing the audience together virtually. We’re so excited to see what fans create throughout this campaign.”
