The first trailer for Channel 4’s upcoming anthology series based on author Philip K. Dick’s short stories has landed online.
The series will air on Stan in Australia, and the channel has given us our first look at the ambitious series ahead of its UK and US premiere.
“This is an electric dream come true,” Bryan Cranston, who is executive producer on the series alongside Battlestar Galactica‘s Ronald D. Moore, said. “We are so thrilled to be able to explore and expand upon the evergreen themes found in the incredible work of this literary master.”
Executive producer Ronald D. Moore added: “As a long-time fan of Philip K. Dick’s work, it’s a tremendous honour 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.”
Electric Dreams is a co-production between Channel 4 and Sony Pictures Television, and consists of ten standalone episodes. It will star Cranston, Lara Pulver, Terrence Howard, Anna Paquin, Timothy Spall, Benedict Wong and more.
Dick’s daughter Isa Dick Hackett said: “I’m thrilled to be working with this exceptional team to bring my father’s short stories to life. Often the source for big, high concept feature films, these short stories represent some of the most dazzling conceptual work of his career, and the fact that they will be adapted by such a diverse set of creative voices is truly an honour.”
