Bryan Cranston, who won four Emmys for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for “Breaking Bad,” will executive produce and appear in a new science-fiction anthology series based on the short stories of Philip K. Dick.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cranston, “Battlestar Galactica’s” Ronald Moore and “Justified’s” Michael Dinner will executive produce “Electric Dreams: The World of Philip K. Dick,” a 10-part anthology series from Sony Pictures Television and U.K. broadcaster Channel 4.
“Each episode is set to be a standalone drama, adapted and modernized for global audiences by a creative team of British and American writers,” THR reports. “The series will both illustrate the writer’s prophetic vision and celebrate the enduring appeal of his works, which include ‘The Man in the High Castle,’ ‘A Scanner Darkly’ and ‘Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?,’ which became Ridley Scott’s hit ‘Blade Runner.'”
