The creepy trailer presents a startling dystopian America, in which the Allies lost to the Nazis and now “Freedom is Under Control.” As the terrifying alternate universe is unveiled, we learn that our flags have been marked by swastikas and we only drive Mercedes Benzes. After two unassuming souls come across a mysterious newsreel film that shows a history of the war that contradicts everything they have ever known, the trailer teases a simmering rebellious uprising that promises to pack a subversive punch. 

Starring Alexa Davalos, Rupert Evans and Rufus Sewell, and executive produced by Ridley Scott and Frank Spotnitz, the ambitious television series is adapted from the 1962 Philip K. Dick novel of the same name.
