Deadline reported, Mel Rodriguez and Vera Farmiga are joining the cast of Electric Dreams.
It’s a 10 episode sci-fi anthology based on Philip K. Dick’s short stories. It’s set to launch in Amazon Prime in the U.S. You can read the details of Farmiga’s and Rodriguez’s roles below:
The duo will lead the episode “Kill All Others.” In it, a man hangs dead from a lamppost, apparently murdered and inexplicably ignored by passersby, after a politician (Farmiga) makes a shocking statement encouraging violence. When one man dares to question the situation he becomes an instant target. Written and directed by Dee Rees (Bessie, Pariah), this episode also stars Rodriguez as the extraordinarily average Philbert Noyce, Jason Mitchell (Straight Outta Compton) as Lenny and Glenn Morshower (Aftermath) as Ed, his co-workers, and Sarah Baker (Big Little Lies, Louie) as Philbert’s wife Maggie Noyce.
Electric Dreams also include Steve Buscemi, Anna Paquin, Terrence Howard, Richard Madden, Holiday Grainger, Benedict Wong, and more.
