Philip K. Dick Novel Gets Syfy Adaptation
The Hugo award-winning alternate history classic The Man in the High Castle by Philip K. Dick will be adapted into a four-hour mini-series by Syfy.
Frank Spotnitz, a producer on X-Files, will write and executive produce the adaptation. Ridley Scott’s Scott Free Productions will produce alongside Headline Pictures, Electric Shepherd Productions and FremantleMedia International.
The release states:
Producers Ridley Scott and Stewart Mackinnon bring us a startling depiction of an alternate history as imagined by author Philip K. Dick in his best-selling novel; a world in which Nazi Germany and Japan were victorious in World War II. The year is 1962 and the Axis Powers occupy the United States, where fascism rules and the few surviving Jews hide under assumed names.
