The X-Files” vet Frank Spotnitz will serve as primary scribe and as exec producer. Scott will exec produce through his shingle Scott Free Prods., alongside Headline Pictures, Electric Shepherd Prods. and FremantleMedia Intl., which will also distribute the mini globally.

Dick’s fascinating alternate-history thriller to life than Ridley Scott and Frank Spotnitz.”
