The Man in the High Castle (Amazon TV series)
The Man in the High Castle is an American dystopian alternative history web television series produced by Amazon Studios, Scott Free, Headline Pictures, Electric Shepherd Productions and Big Light Productions. The series is loosely based on the 1962 novel of the same name by American science fiction author Philip K. Dick. The story is an alternative history of the world in which the Axis powers won World War II. The United States has been partitioned into three parts: The Japanese puppet state Japanese Pacific States, which comprises the former United States west of the Rocky Mountains; a Nazi puppet state that comprises the eastern half of the former United States; and the Neutral Zone that acts as a buffer between the two. There is strict censorship, including a ban on the Bible in both the Nazi and Japanese puppet states, and while not strictly illegal in the Neutral Zone, it is not legal either. A major national holiday is VA Day: Victory in America. The pilot premiered on January 15, 2015, and was Amazon's "most-watched since the original series development program began." On February 18, 2015, the series was picked up for a ten-episode season, and the remaining nine episodes were released on November 20, 2015.
