Watch The Eerie Trailer For Amazon's New Philip K. Dick Anthology Series
The trailer for Electric Dreams, Amazon's upcoming anthology series based on the works of science fiction author Philip K. Dick, premiered Friday at New York Comic Con.
Electric Dreams' star-studded cast, which includes Steve Buscemi, Anna Paquin, Bryan Cranston and Janelle Monae, is seen sailing misty seas, sprinting down dark alleyways and doing various other spooky things in the two-minute trailer. Check it out in full above.
Electric Dreams isn't Amazon's first Philip K. Dick adaptation; The Man in the High Castle, a dystopian series based on Dick's 1962 alternative-history novel of the same name, premiered on the streaming service in 2015. The writer's daughter, Isa Dick Hackett, serves as an executive producer on both shows.
The series will hit Amazon sometime in 2018, but a release date has yet to be announced. For now, we'll just have to content ourselves with watching the trailer on repeat and sleeping with the lights on.
