Mark your calendars, sci-fi fans. Amazon today announced that its new anthology series “Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams” will premiere on Jan. 12, exclusively on Prime Video.
The much-anticipated streaming series will be comprised of 10 standalone episodes, each set in different worlds — five to 5,000 years in the future — but all exploring the significance of humanity, according to Amazon.
It’s not the first time Amazon has turned to the writings of the celebrated author whose work became the sci-fi classic “Blade Runner.” “The Man in the the High Castle” is an Emmy Award winner and the most-watched scripted series ever on Prime.
“Electric Dreams” features a cast of big stars including Steve Buscemi, Bryan Cranston, Greg Kinnear, Maura Tierney, Janelle Monáe, Mireille Enos, Anna Paquin, Terrence Howard and more.
“We’re excited to share the fantastical world of Philip K. Dick as it’s never been experienced before,” said Brad Beale of Amazon Prime Video in a news release. “With the combined creative genius behind this series, as well as the stellar cast and visually compelling locations, every episode of this sci-fi anthology is sure to be an entertaining experience for our Prime members.”
