Based on the short stories of one of science fiction’s most prolific authors, the new anthology series, Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams, explores humanity in 10 standalone episodes. The first, “The Hood Maker,” has already aired in the United Kingdom. The series will air in the United States on Amazon Video. No release date has been officially announced; however, Amazon dropped a spectacular trailer on Friday.
Amazon says the series includes a “sweeping all-star cast” and “each epic story will explore fantasy, humanity, and a future we’ve only begun to imagine. From five to 5,000 years in the future, each story in the anthology will question what it means to be human in uniquely ambitious, grounded, yet fantastical worlds.”
The pedigree for the series is impressive. It comes from Executive Producers Ronald D. Moore (Battlestar Galactica) and Michael Dinner (Justified), who will also write episodes, and stars Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), who is also an Executive Producer. Dick, or course, wrote the novel, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, on which the movie Blade Runner was based. (Blade Runner 2049 opened in theaters this weekend to inauspicious box office results.)
