Amazon Scores Philip K. Dick Anthology Series

Amazon has landed U.S. rights to the anthology series “Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams” from Sony Pictures Television.

“Outlander” and “Battlestar Galactica” show runner Ronald D. Moore is teaming with “Breaking Bad” star turned producer Bryan Cranston on the ten episode project which was produced by UK’s Channel 4.

The series will feature adaptations of the revered science fiction author’s works which resulted in such films as “Blade Runner,” “Minority Report” and “Total Recall”. Cranston is expected to appear in at least one episode.

“Mudbound” helmer Dee Rees will pen one of the episodes along with Tony Grisoni (“Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas”), Jack Thorne (“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child”) Matthew Graham (“Life on Mars”), David Farr (“The Night Manager”), Michael Dinner (“Justified”), Travis Beacham (“Pacific Rim”) and Moore himself.
