THE MAN IN THE HIGH CASTLE
TO BECOME AMAZON'S SF SERIES
According to 'Deadline', Amazon Studios have ordered a TV series pilot episode for a small screen adaptation of Philip K. Dick's famous sf novel THE MAN IN THE HIGH CASTLE! Previously intended for SyFy, the series is set in 1962 in an alternative reality in which Nazi Germany and Japan won World War II and occupy the United States, with the East Coast controlled by the Nazis and the West Coast owned by Japan, and a chunk of the Midwest still up for grabs. Fascism rules and the few surviving Jews hide under assumed names. But an ageing Hitler has one foot in the grave, and the Japanese are preparing for an imminent Nazi stab in the back. The U.S. Resistance is scattered, scared, or crushed.
