Bryan Cranston to star in new 10-part sci-fi series for Channel 4
Bryan Cranston - loved the world over as both Walter White from Breaking Bad and Hal from Malcolm In The Middle - will be lending his talents to an upcoming 10-part Channel 4 series.
The sci-fi series, called Electric Dreams: The World of Phillip K. Dick, will run for 10 episodes - each of which will be a standalone drama based around Dick's work.
Speaking about the project, Cranston said: “This is an electric dream come true. We are so thrilled to be able to explore and expand upon the evergreen themes found in the incredible work of this literary master.”
Phillip K. Dick is regarded as a legend of the sci-fi genre; his novella The Man In The High Castle was recently adapted for screen by Amazon Prime.
Dick's work has also served as the inspiration for other classic sci-fi films such as Blade Runner, Total Recall and Minority Report.
The series will be co-produced by Ronald D. Moore, who was responsible for the Battlestar Galactica reboot as well as Star Trek.
