After attacking the and land-based storage facilities, it appears Amazon in going after Black Mirror. The online conglomerate is launching a new sci-fi anthology series, Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams, and takes on a similar feel to the famous technology-induced dystopia series.
Creating an anthology series off of Dick's short stories is a smart idea. Before the writer died in 1982, he practically defined the pulp sci-fi author archetype by pumping out hundreds of them. It's also the second Dick-related show on Amazon, coming behind The Man in the High Castle, which has been met with mixed reviews.
The anthology, which will feature 10 standalone episodes, also exists as a showcase for the company's deep pockets. The cast for the anthology includes includes Bryan Cranston (doing double duty as an execuctive producer alongside Ronald D. Moore), Anna Paquin, Steve Buscemi, Juno Temple, Vera Farmiga, Greg Kinnear, and Janelle Monáe. The series will air on Amazon Prime in the States, the Australian streaming service Stan, and the British Channel 4, the original home of Black Mirror.
