Breaking Bad‘s Bryan Cranston will be appearing in a 10-part anthology series titled Electric Dreams: The World of Philip K. Dick.
Cranston will also be an executive producer working alongside Battlestar Galatica‘s Ronald Moore and Justified‘s Michael Dinner.
It was announced on Tuesday that Sony Pictures Television and British broadcaster Channel 4 will be partnering up with the drama series based on the short stories written by novelist Philip K. Dick.
Each episode has been creatively crafted by British and American writers making it appropriate for the modern and globalised audiences of television.
Part of the intention of the series is to also highlight the prophetic vision of the writer to showcase an appeal in his works for The Man in the High Castle, A Scanner Darkly and Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, which became Ridley Scott‘s hit Blade Runner.
“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.”
“As a longtime fan of Philip K. Dick’s work, it’s a tremendous honor and thrill to be part of this series. His short stories are a treasure trove of material for artists to draw from, and I think this will be a very exciting project” added Moore.
