TNT has greenlit two non-fiction series:

TNT is also working with master storyteller and filmmaker Ridley Scott to develop a night of original science-fiction programming. Initial plans call for the block to serve as a showcase for hour-long series, short-form programs and other formats to be developed in collaboration with Scott.

On the development front, TNT has ordered a pilot for Highland, a scripted drama written by Liz Sarnoff and starring actress-comedian Margaret Cho, and announced Daveed Diggs, who earned a Tony® for the Broadway hit Hamilton, will star in the network’s drama pilot Snowpiercer, which will be directed by Doctor Strange helmer Scott Derrickson.
