Deadline has learned that Bryan Cranston has signed on to star in “Electric Dreams: The World of Philip K. Dick,” a 10-part anthology series from Sony and the UK’s Channel 4.
“This is an electric dream come true,” said Cranston. “We are so thrilled to be able to explore and expand upon the evergreen themes found in the incredible work of this literary master.”
Dick’s work has inspired numerous adaptations, including the films “Blade Runner,” “Total Recall,” “A Scanner Darkly,” “Minority Report” and more. His novel “The Man in the High Castle” was recently adapted into a television series by Amazon.
“Battlestar Galactica” showrunner Ronald D. Moore and “Justified’s” Michael Dinner will run the series. True to its anthology style, each episode is described as a standalone that “will celebrate and illustrate Philip K. Dick’s distinctive vision.” The show’s writer’s room will include both British and American writers.
Cranston will also serve as executive producer for the sci-fi anthology, along with “The Man in the High Castle’s” Isa Dick Hackett, Kalen Egan and Christopher Tricarico. James Degus, Maril Davis, David Kanter and Matt DeRoss will also executive produce the series.
The series will debut on Channel 4 in the UK and will be distributed internationally by Sony Pictures Television
