Mel Rodriguez & Vera Farmiga Cast In Electric Dreams

Channel 4 has announced that Mel Rodriguez (Last Man on Earth) and Vera Farmiga (Bates Motel) will star in an episode of Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams entitled Kill All Others.

The series will feature ten episodes inspired by Philip K. Dick’s renowned short stories, adapted and contemporised for global audiences by leading British and American writers. Each episode will be a standalone drama that will serve to illustrate Philip K. Dick’s prophetic vision whilst celebrating the enduring appeal of his work.

Written and directed by Dee Rees (Bessie), Kill All Others tells the story of a man who hangs dead from a lamp post, apparently murdered and inexplicably ignored by passersby, after a politician (Vera Farmiga) makes a shocking statement which encourages violence. When one man dares to question the situation he becomes an instant target.

The cast includes Mel Rodriguez (Little Miss Sunshine) as the extraordinarily average Philbert Noyce, Jason Mitchell (Straight Outta Compton) and Glenn Morshower (Supergirl) as his co-workers Lenny and Ed, and Sarah Brown (CSI) as Philbert’s wife Maggie.

Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams will air later this year on Channel 4 in the UK, and on Amazon in the US.
