Ronald D. Moore is heading to Great Britain, and he’s taking Heisenberg with him.
Moore, the former “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” writer and co-executive producer, is creating a new miniseries based on Philip K. Dick’s works called “Electric Dreams.” Joining him on the project is Emmy-winning and Oscar-nominated actor Bryan Cranston — best known for his work in the AMC series “Breaking Bad.”
“As a long-time fan of Philip K. Dick’s work, it’s a tremendous honor and thrill to be part of this series,” Moore said, according to Britain’s Evening Standard. “His short stories are a treasure-trove of material for artists to draw from, and I think this will be a very exciting project.”
The series will be an anthology series, telling 10 different stories, all based on the many works of Dick. The author of works such as “The Man in the High Castle” and “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?” led a troubled life despite his literary success, filled with drugs and depression. In 1982, he complained his eyesight was failing, but wouldn’t go to the doctor, and suffered a stroke the next day. He died less than a week later after his family removed him from life support at the age of 53.
