Richard Madden (Game of Thrones, Cinderella), Holiday Grainger (The Finest Hours, Cinderella) and Anneika Rose (Line of Fire, Silent Witness) join the cast of Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams which is coming soon to Channel 4.
The trio star in a stand-alone episode, The Hood Maker, which is set in a world without advanced technology and where mutant telepaths have become humanity’s only mechanism for long distance communication. But their powers have unintended implications and when the public begins to embrace mysterious, telepath-blocking hoods, two detectives with an entangled past are brought in to investigate.
Madden will play Agent Ross, opposite Grainger as Honor and Anneika Rose as Mary.
The Hood Maker is written by Matthew Graham (Life on Mars, Ashes to Ashes) and directed by Julian Jarrold (Becoming Jane, Kinky Boots).
