Man in the High Castle Headed to SYFY
Big news. everyone: the adaptation of Dick's Man in the High Castle has moved from the BBC where it was originally to air to the channel of schlock, SYFY. Is this a demotion? Hard to say, but the good news is they've got a talented writer from The X-Files, Frank Spotnitz, working on the project. Ridley Scott is still attached in some capacity, I think. Here's what we know: they're gonna give the mini-series four hours, and, as of yet, there is no air date. Most articles (this one at the NYT is the best) recycle a Isa Dick-Hackett quote from the original project. If anything, this ought to wake up a few Philip K Dick Article Writing Machines.
