On of Amazon’s newest series is an alternate-reality speculation of what the world might be like if the Allied Powers lost World War II.

The series is called “The Man in the High Castle,” and it based on Philip K. Dick’s Hugo Award-winning 1962 alternative history novel of the same name.

The series will take place in the U.S., but nearly 20 years after the Axis powers won the war. The hour-long drama stars Alexa Davalos (Mob City), Luke Kleintank (Pretty Little Liars), Rupert Evans (The Village), Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa (Mortal Kombat Legacy), and Rufus Sewell (Eleventh Hour).

The cast were on-stage today at San Diego Comic-Con to promote the new series, along with executive producers Frank Spotnitz (The X-Files) and David W. Zucker (The Good Wife).

Fans can watch the pilot on Amazon Video ahead of the Fall premiere of the show.
