Snowpiercer And Chad To Premiere At SXSW

I saw some of the Snowpiercer panel at SDCC ahead of the cast and creative interview and it looked great. Here is what TNT/TBS has planned for SXSW.


Sunday, March 15 – World Premiere of TBS’ Chad (Talent on-site March 14)

  • Series Description:
    • Chad is a single-camera comedy starring Nasim Pedrad that follows a 14-year-old pubescent Persian boy (Pedrad) as he navigates his first year of high school on a mission to become popular. Chad’s friendships and sanity are pushed to the limits as he uses every tactic at his disposal to befriend the cool kids, while enduring his mother’s new dating life and reconciling with his cultural identity. Pedrad, who first made her mark on Saturday Night Live, is also creator, writer, executive producer and co-showrunner on Chad. The Iranian-American actress is joined by co-stars Ella Mika, as Chad’s younger sister; Saba Homayoon, as Chad’s mother; Paul Chahidi, playing a distant relative; Jake Ryan, playing Chad’s best friend and Alexa Loo, playing a classmate. Oly Obst (3 Arts) serves as executive producer along with Robert Padnick and Rob Rosell. Rhys Thomas executive produced and directed the pilot and will direct and executive produce multiple episodes this season. Hayes Davenport also executive produced the pilot and is a consulting producer on the series.
