The 10-episode, anthology series brings to life thrilling parables of surreal worlds and alternate realities, each inspired by award-winning sci-fi novelist Philip K. Dick’s renowned short stories. Every episode is available to Space subscribers on the newly launched Space GO app, in addition to being available on Space.ca, immediately following its broadcast premiere.

Moore (OUTLANDER, BATTLESTAR GALATICA), Michael Dinner (JUSTIFIED), Tony Grisoni (Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas),and Jack Thorne (SKINS). Some of the other top writers include Matthew Graham (DOCTOR WHO), David Farr (THE NIGHT MANAGER), Dee Rees (Mudbound),and Travis Beacham (Pacific Rim). The episodes expand upon the evergreen themes found in Dick’s literary work, and have been contemporised for new TV audiences.

When the public begins to embrace mysterious, telepath-blocking hoods, two detectives with an entangled past are brought in to investigate.
