We’re drowning in fall TV as it is — this week alone marks the premieres of The Leftovers, Homeland, The Flash, iZombie, Arrow, American Horror Story, and more — but don’t expect the deluge to let up anytime soon. Case in point: This November brings the premiere of The Man in the High Castle, Amazon’s Ridley Scott-produced adaptation on the Philip K. Dick novel.
The drama is set in an alternate 1962 where the Axis powers won World War II. A San Francisco woman (Alexa Davalos) comes into possession of a film reel depicting a world where the Allied powers were victorious, which inspires some very dangerous ideas. Luke Kleintank and Rufus Sewell also star. Watch The Man in the High Castle trailer after the jump. Read More »

Luke Kleintank is playing a new character called Joe Blake in the pilot, while Alexa Davalos (Clash Of The Titans, Mob City) has just won the lead female role, a slightly altered version of Juliana Frink from the novel.
