"The Man in the High Castle" (TV show) is a drama series on Amazon that is adapted from Philip K. Dick's Hugo Award-winning novel.

The series considers the question of what would have happened if the Allied Powers had lost World War II. Almost 20 years after that loss, the United States and much of the world has now been split between Japan and Germany, the major hegemonic states. But the tension between these two powers is mounting, and this stress is playing out in the western U.S. Through a collection of characters in various states of posing (spies, sellers of falsified goods, others with secret identities), the series provides an intriguing tale about life and history as it relates to authentic and manufactured reality.

The cast includes Alexa Davalos ("Mob City") as Juliana Crain, Luke Kleintank ("Pretty Little Liars") as Joe Blake, Rupert Evans ("The Village") as Frank Frink, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa ("Mortal Kombat Legacy") as Tagomi, Joel De La Fuente ("Hemlock Grove") as Inspector Kido, Rufus Sewell ("Eleventh Hour") as John Smith and DJ Qualls ("Z Nation") as Ed McCarthy.

"The Man in the High Castle" is produced by Scott Free Productions with Headline Pictures, Electric Shepherd Productions and FremantleMedia International. The pilot was directed by David Semel ("Madam Secretary," "Heroes") and written by Frank Spotnitz ("The X-Files"), both serving as executive producers. Also executive producing are Ridley Scott ("Blade Runner") and David W. Zucker ("The Good Wife"), with co-executive producer Jordan Sheehan of Scott Free Productions ("The Good Wife," "The Andromeda Strain"), and executive producers Stewart Mackinnon and Christian Baute of Headline Pictures ("The Invisible Woman"). In addition, Isa Dick Hackett will executive produce and Kalen Egan will co-executive produce on behalf of Electric Shepherd ("The Adjustment Bureau"). Christopher Tricarico ("May in the Summer") is also executive producer.
