I was lucky enough to be part of the roundtables for Amazon’s Prime Original Series, The Man in the High Castle, based on the book by famed SciFi author, Philip K. Dick.
Based on Philip K. Dick’s Hugo Award-winning 1962 alternate history novel, one-hour drama series THE MAN IN THE HIGH CASTLE explores what would have happened if the Allied Powers had lost World War II. Some 15 years after that loss, the United States, and much of the world, has been divided between Imperial Japan and Nazi Germany, the dominating global powers. But while Germany controls the eastern half of the United States, and Japan controls the Pacific Coast, the Rocky Mountains have become a “neutral zone” — and ground zero for a resistance movement that refuses to accept the new world order. Under the direction of a mysterious figure known only as “the Man in the High Castle,” members of the resistance hunt down an enigmatic series of black and white newsreel films that they believe hold the key to freedom — the films show footage from our own past in which the Allies, in fact, won the war.
This series is being heralded as Amazon’s answer to Netflix’s House of Cards–and as someone who has seen the first two episodes, I can say that the comparison is well deserved. The production quality, the acting, the scripts, directing..every aspect is movie quality, and truly something that will make a viewer want to watch episode after episode.
Below are some of the interviews I was lucky enough to interview with the cast and the executive producer during New York Comic Con this year. Hope you enjoy!
