MCM London Comic Con will get an exclusive first look at Episode 2 of new Amazon Original drama The Man in the High Castle, with the sci-fi thriller getting its first ever UK screening at 1pm on Friday 23 October in the show’s Gold Theatre. Based on Philip K. Dick’s Hugo Award-winning novel, The Man in the High Castle is set in a dystopian alternate timeline where the Allies lost World War II and America is divided between the Axis powers.
Man in the High Castle is the latest Amazon Original series to be made following its unique pilots system, whereby customers are invited to watch and provide feedback on a range of pilots of new drama and comedies to have their say on the ones they want to see turned into full series. With an average star rating of 4.8/5 – and over 1,500 reviews to date – it’s the most highly-anticipated show of all the Amazon Original series.
Executive produced by Ridley Scott (Alien, Blade Runner), Frank Spotnitz (The X-Files) and David Semel (Heroes), The Man in the High Castle stars Alexa Davalos (Mob City) as Juliana Crain, Luke Kleintank (Pretty Little Liars) as Joe Blake and Rupert Evans (The Village) as Frank Frink. Also starring are Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa (Mortal Kombat Legacy) as Tagomi, Joel De La Fuente (Hemlock Grove) as Inspector Kido, Rufus Sewell (Eleventh Hour) as John Smith and DJ Qualls (Z Nation) as Ed McCarthy.
The event takes place across the weekend of October 23 to 25 at London’s ExCel.
The article does not mention that any of the actors or creators will be in attendance. It looks like it will simply be a screening of episode 2.
If you listen to us at all, you know that the fall television season that the big networks celebrate hasn’t given us much to celebrate in recent years. Midseason is where it’s at, people! But are we ready to take back every nasty thing we said about the fall after compiling this list of our Most Anticipated New Fall Series? Kind of!
Thanks to some great cable entries and a few solid-looking network offerings, these next few months look like they won’t be another fall full of lamenting another fall season. Space aliens, murderous slashers, and a kick-puncher are among our predictions for the best new shows this fall. So peruse the list and prepare yourself!
1. The Man in the High Castle (Amazon)
WHEN IT’S ON: The 10 episodes of Season 1 will all plop down on Amazon Instant Video on Friday, November 20.
WHO’S IN IT: Alexa Davalos, Rupert Evans, Luke Kleintank, DJ Qualls, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, Rufus Sewell, and Joel de la Fuente.
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: Based on the Philip K. Dick novel, this alternative history drama poses the question of what would happen if the Germans and Japanese won dubya-dubya-too. The answer: swastikas everywhere!
WHY WE’RE EXCITED ABOUT IT: Amazon released the pilot as part of its pilot program in early 2014, and we LOVED it. The idea of a new United States was terrifying and spectacularly recreated in the style of producer Ridley Scott’s best films (i.e. Blade Runner). If there’s a can’t-miss show out this fall, it’s this one.
Alexa Davalos (Clash Of The Titans, Mob City) has landed the lead role in Amazon pilot The Man In The High Castle, from X-Files alum Frank Spotnitz and Scott Free, with David Semel set to direct. Based on Philip K. Dick’s Hugo Award-winning novel, the project is set in 1962 and explores 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. Davalos, repped by Anonymous Content, plays Juliana, who lives in Japanese-occupied San Francisco. She is fascinated by Japanese culture and has mastered the art of aikido, but her personal state of truce with the Empire Of Japan stops forever when her half sister Trudy is shot dead in front of her eyes by a Japanese soldier. Entrusted by Trudy with a black satchel containing a vital pro- Resistance propaganda film, Juliana says goodbye to her comfortable life and heads east for Colorado, the secret headquarters of the Resistance, and the road ahead of her is very blurry and very dangerous. Luke Kleintank recently got the male lead in the project.
