Syfy To Develop 'The Man In The High Castle' Adaptation

Syfy will adapt Philip K. Dick’s Hugo Award-winning novel The Man In The High Castle into a 4-hour miniseries event.
Frank Spotnitz (The X-Files, Hunted) will write and serve as Executive Producer.
Ridley Scott's Scott Free Productions will produce the project with Headline Pictures, Electric Shepherd Productions and FremantleMedia International. Spotnitz will write the first two hours and supervise the writing of the second two hours (writer TBA).
Producers Ridley Scott and Stewart Mackinnon bring us a startling depiction of an alternate history as imagined by author Philip K. Dick in his best-selling novel; a world in which Nazi Germany and Japan were victorious in World War II. The year is 1962 and the Axis Powers occupy the United States, where fascism rules and the few surviving Jews hide under assumed names.
"Alternate history stories are part of an amazing and intricate genre of sci-fi," said Mark Stern President of Original Content, Syfy and Co-Head, Original Content, Universal Cable Productions. "When done well, there’s nothing better; and I can't think of better creative talent to bring Philip K. Dick’s fascinating alternate-history thriller to life than Ridley Scott and Frank Spotnitz.
"Ridley Scott is one of my all-time favorite filmmakers and this is one of my all-time favorite books," added Spotnitz, "so I am incredibly honored and thrilled to have this opportunity."
"The Man in The High Castle is one of Dick’s most imaginative and captivating works and certainly one of my favorites. I am pleased to team up with the singular Frank Spotnitz and Syfy, Headline Pictures, Electric Shepherd and FremantleMedia International to bring this epic to audiences who will find this story as intriguing and riveting as we do." said Ridley Scott.
Stewart Mackinnon of Headline Pictures commented, "Philip K. Dick’s classic thriller asks us all to consider what we would do if our world was turned upside down and everything we value is lost. It’s a chilling story that explores our universal hopes and fears."
