When Nerds Attack was lucky enough to interview the cast and producers of both Amazon’s The Man in the High Castle and the new anthology show, Electric Dreams, both based on Philip K. Dick properties/short stories. It was wonderful to sit down with Rufus Sewell and Alexa Davalos again to discuss what is in store for their characters in the upcoming season, along with newcomer Jason O’Mara about his new character Wyatt and his motivations. From the interviews, it seems that Electric Dreams is shaping up to be some well produced, deep scifi/fantasy fare that at it’s core will be about humanity. Check out the reviews and let us know what you think!
