LONDON, May 10 (UPI) — “Breaking Bad” alum Bryan Cranston is executive producing — and will appear in — a 10-part anthology series based on the short stories of science-fiction titan Philip K. Dick.
“Electric Dreams: The World of Philip K. Dick” is being written and executive produced by Ronald D. Moore and Michael Dinner. It is expected to premiere on Britain’s Channel 4 and Sony Pictures Television will distribute it internationally.
“This is an electric dream come true. We are so thrilled to be able to explore and expand upon the evergreen themes found in the incredible work of this literary master,” Cranston said in a statement Tuesday.
“As a long-time fan of Philip K. Dick’s work, it’s a tremendous honor and thrill to be part of this series,” added Moore whose credits include the celebrated Starz series “Outlander.” “His short stories are a treasure-trove of material for artists to draw from and I think this will be a very exciting project.”
