Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams Anthology Series Coming to Amazon

According to the Hollywood Reporter,  a 10 episode anthology series based on the short stories of noted science fiction author Philip K. Dick entitled Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams has begun production in London.

The series (produced by Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston) will feature 10 stand-alone stories based on the author’s vast catalog of mind-bending tales.

Details of the first episode have also been revealed as Timothy Spall (Harry Potter, Sweeney Todd), “…will play the lead in The Commuter, as an unassuming employee at a train station who is alarmed to discover that a number of daily commuters are taking the train to a town that shouldn’t exist. Jack Thorne (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child) wrote the episode based on Dick’s short story, with Tom Harper (War & Peace, Peaky Blinders) on directing duties.”

Amazon’s streaming television viewers are probably already familiar with the critically acclaimed The Man in the High Castle (based on Dick’s seminal novel) and this new anthology series will undoubtedly attract fans of the author, anthology series like Netflix’s Black Mirror, and anyone with a taste for paranoia.

No debut date has been announced at this time, so stayed tuned to Horror News Network for further updates as they happen.
