The man famous for his portrayal of Walter White will return to the small screen in a very different role.
The series, entitled Electric Dreams: The World of Philip K Dick, is a 10-part science fiction show that will take inspiration from the famous writer’s considerable canon.
Hollywood has been using Dick’s work for years, with the likes of Minority Report, Blade Runner and Total Recall all inspired by earlier works of fiction.
As well as staring in the anthology, Cranston will also act as executive producer, so fans eager to see the man most famous for playing Walter White back on the TV are in for a treat.
Since Breaking Bad concluded Cranston has featured in a number of films and most recently he was nominated for an Oscar for his portrayal of screenwriter Dalton Trumbo.
But having enjoyed previous small screen success with Malcom in the Middle and Breaking Bad, Cranston will now be using the work of one of science fiction’s greatest ever writers to create what he will hope is another huge hit.
