How ‘Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams’ Shows a Different Side of the Legendary Sci-fi Writer [Interview]
Posted on Thursday, January 11th, 2018 by Fred Topel
Philip K. Dick has been the inspiration for many movies and TV shows. Films like Blade Runner and Total Recall were based on his stories Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? and We Can Remember It For You Wholesale. The Man in the High Castle has been updated for television on Amazon. Movies like Paycheck and Minority Report are based on Dick’s writing.
Another sci-fi veteran, Ronald D. Moore, is bringing more Philip K. Dick to television. Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams is an anthology series featuring a different Dick adaptation each episode. Moore created the 2004 Battlestar Galactica reboot and began his career on Star Trek: The Next Generation. He has continued to work in genre television – his recent work includes Helix and Outlander. This new series is very much in his wheelhouse.
Moore spoke with us about Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams ahead of the show’s January 12, 2018 premiere on Amazon.
