Los Angeles— In his latest television outing, director David Semel engages in a frightening, but enthralling, game of “What if?”
Produced for Amazon by Ridley Scott and based on the award-winning Phillip K. Dick novel, The Man in the High Castle is an alternate history set in the aftermath of World War II, but in this telling, the Nazis and their Japanese allies were the victors. Semel directed the pilot, which is currently available through Amazon Prime’s instant video service.
Semel, who recently launched his career as a commercial director through Accomplice Media, is an acknowledged master of the exacting art of the television pilot. His past credits include the hits Person of Interest, Legends, Heroes and, most recently, Madam Secretary. He received Emmy nominations for House M.D. and Heroes.
