Richard Madden and Holliday Grainger have been cast in the upcoming Amazon anthology series “Philip K Dick’s Electric Dreams,” Variety has learned.
The 10-episode sci-fi series is based on the short stories of Philip K. Dick, with each episode serving as a standalone narrative in the vein of “Black Mirror.”
Madden and Grainger will appear in the episode “The Hood Maker.” It is set in a world without advanced technology and where mutant telepaths have become humanity’s only mechanism for long distance communication. But their powers have unintended consequences and when the public begins to embrace mysterious, telepath-blocking hoods, two detectives are brought in to investigate.
Madden will play Agent Ross in the episode and Grainger will play Honor. Anneika Rose has also been cast in the episode as Mary. Matthew Graham wrote the episode with Julian Jarrold directing.
They join previously announced cast members in other episodes including Timothy Spall, Jack Reynor, Benedict Wong, Anna Paquin, Terence Howard, Steve Buscemi, Greg Kinnear, Mireille Enos, and Bryan Cranston.
