Electric Dreams

Sundays at 9pm

Electric Dreams is a bold new sci-fi anthology series of epic and ambitious stand-alone episodes, each inspired by a Philip K. Dick short story, and set in a different and unique world. The first episode, The Hood Maker, is set sometime in the future in a strangely archaic city. This world is an analogue world, precipitated by the Great Shower; a meteor shower that fried communications, energy conversion and the internet. But this event also created the Teeps: a race of telepathic mutants that are feared and revered in equal measure. A war is coming between Normals and the Teeps - and only Agent Ross (Richard Madden) and a Teep called Honor (Holliday Grainger) can prevent it. But can they suppress their own feelings for each other and stop the war before humanity rips itself apart?
