Bell Media has acquired three new dramas, including the highly anticipated anthology series Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams, at the L.A. Screenings for its Space and Bravo channels.

Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams will air on Bravo in the 2017-18 broadcast season. The anthology, from Sony Pictures Television, includes Bryan Cranston, Anna Paquin and Steve Buscemi among its stars.

Also coming to Bravo is the family drama Life Sentence. The series, which stars Lucy Hale, was picked up from Warner Bros. International Television Distribution.

Meanwhile, the Superman prequel story Krypton, starring Cameron Cuffe, will air on Space. Stateside, Krypton is a Syfy original. The show is also sold by Warner Bros.

Additionally, Space is set to air Talking Trek, a companion after-show for Star Trek: Discovery, which is also headed to the network. Both were picked up from CBS Studios International.
