It's fair to say that Bryan Cranston has left his mark on television.
Between his turn as Hal in Malcolm in the Middle and his iconic portrayal as Walter White in Breaking Bad you'd forgive for thinking that he's done with TV work now that his movie career is blossoming. Thankfully for us this is not the case as the star recently signed up to lead the cast in a new limited series based on the work of Philip K. Dick.
Dick of course is the genius novelist behind the major sci-fi works that inspired movies such as Blade Runner, A Scanner Darkly, Minority Report and The Adjustment Bureau.
The ten part anthology series will be titled Electric Dreams: The World of Philip K. Dick and will be Michael Dinner (Justified) and Battlestar Galactica‘s Ronald D. Moore.
According to Variety, '“Electric Dreams” will illustrate Dick’s prophetic vision and celebrate the prized sci-fi novelist’s work and each episode will be a standalone drama adapted and contemporised for global audiences by a creative team of U.S. and Brit scribes.'
Channel 4 are financing and will be broadcasting it for UK and Irish audiences simultaneously with the US broadcast.
