Timothy Spall has been cast in the starring role of an episode of the upcoming Amazon anthology series “Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams.” Spall is known to American audiences for playing Peter Pettigrew in the “Harry Potter” films as well as Winston Churchill in “The King’s Speech.”

When he investigates for himself, he comes face to face with an alternate reality that forces him to confront his own struggles around his relationship with his wife Mary (Rebecca Manley) and his very troubled son Sam (Anthony Boyle.)

The episode is based on Dick’s short story of the same name and is written by Jack Thorne. Tom Harper will direct. Rudi Dharmalingham, Tuppence Middleton, Anne Reid, Ann Akin, Hayley Squires, Tom Brooke, Nicole Agada, Marko Leht, Matthew Raymond and Naveed Khan will also appear in the episode.
