Watch Electric Dreams Anywhere

Electric Dreams is returning to Channel 4 in 2018, and this innovative programme has a massive following around the world. Unfortunately this Channel 4 production is only available to UK viewers on All 4. Unless you partner with Liberty Shield. Details Below.

Electric Dreams, from the prophetic mind of Philip K. Dick, is an innovative new anthology show returning to Channel 4 and All 4 in early 2018. Unfortunately this service is only available to consumers in the UK. That is unless you partner with Liberty Shield.

Following on from the hotly anticipated first run of Electric Dreams, the sci-fi anthology series is set to continue on Channel 4 with four more episodes in early 2018.

Each episode is a stand-alone story; each inspired by one of Philip K. Dick’s renowned shorts stories. The worlds we are invited into vary from a collapsed society populated by citizens denied freedom of choice by an automatic product-manufacturing factory; an average suburban town suffering from an alien invasion with the fate of the human race resting in the hands of a young boy; people mysteriously hanging dead from lampposts in the street; and a futuristic city living under a terror-prevention regime.

Electric Dreams


Juno Temple (Vinyl, The Dark Knight Rises) and Janelle Monae (Hidden Figures, Moonlight) star in “Autofac”, based on the Philip K. Dick short story of the same name.

In this episode, despite society and the world as we know it having collapsed, a massive, automatic product-manufacturing factory continues to operate according to the principles of consumerism – humans consume products to be happy, and in order to consume continuously, they must be denied freedom of choice and free will. When a small band of rebels decide to shut down the factory, they discover they may actually be the perfect consumers after all.

Temple will play Emily, one of the rebels, and Monae appears as Alexis, an ‘Autofac’ representative. Jay Paulson (Mad Men, Grimm) and David Lyons (Revolution, ER) will also appear in the episode.

The episode is directed by Peter Horton (Grey’s Anatomy, American Odyssey, Thirtysomething) and written by Travis Beacham (Pacific Rim, Clash of The Titans).

Charlie, played by Jack Gore (Billions), our young hero must make the most difficult decisions imaginable to protect his Mother, played by Mireille Enos (The Catch, The Killing, World War Z) and the human race, as he is among the first to realise that humans are being replaced by dangerous monsters.

The episode is written and directed by Emmy award winner Michael Dinner (Sneaky Pete, Justified,The Wonder Years) who also serves as executive producer on the series.
