Bryan Cranston Boards Philip K. Dick Anthology Series From Ronald D. Moore

Following his Academy Award-nominated turn as legendary screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, Bryan Cranston will return to television in a new series celebrating the work of sci-fi scribe Philip K. Dick.

The five-time Emmy-winning Breaking Bad vet will executive-produce and appear in some episodes of the sci-fi anthology Electric Dreams: The World of Philip K. Dick, Deadline reports. Ronald D. Moore (Outlander) and Michael Dinner (Masters of Sex) are writing the 10-part drama.

The series, which is set to air in the UK on Channel 4, will be distributed internationally by Sony Pictures Television. A U.S. network has not yet acquired the program.

Though Dick is best known for writing The Man In the High Castle (which was recently adapted into an Amazon series), his acclaimed works also include Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? (which inspired the Ridley Scott classic Blade Runner) and A Scanner Darkly.

Cranston can next be seen on the small screen in HBO’s film adaptation of the Tony-winning play All the Way (premiering May 21 at 8/7c), which centers on the administration of former president Lyndon B. Johnson.

    Man in the high castle is pretty cool,wonder if anything else worth seeing.

    If they do ‘Ubik’, I will be so happy. I’Ve always wanted to see that one on screen. It’s so delightfully weird. And ‘Flow My Tears, The Policeman Said’. And even ‘Androids’ – the book is so different from ‘Bladerunner’ the movie, that they could legitimately ‘re-adapt that one and people would probably not even recognize it.

    I’m really looking forward to this
