Krau Ming quotes from a report at Sneakpeek.ca “Ridley Scott’s Scott Free Productions will produce a 4-hour TV adaptation of author Phlip K. Dick’s The Man in the High Castle, based on a script by Howard Brenton. The original 1962 novel was a science fiction ‘alternate history’ that won a sci fi Hugo book award in 1963. Premise of the book, about daily life under totalitarian Fascist imperialism, occurs in 1962, fourteen years after the end of the Second World War in 1948. The victorious Axis Powers, Japan and Germany, conduct intrigues against each other in North America, specifically in the former US, which surrendered to them, after the Axis conquered Eurasia and destroyed the populaces of Africa.” Adds Krau Ming: “Hopefully this will fall in the category of well-done PKD adaptations (though I’ll leave it up to the slashdotters to determine which of the previous movies should be categorized as such.”
