It is interesting that inside the novel of the writer there is another novel forbidden by the Nazis for publication - “The Grasshopper is Heavy,” authored by A Man in a High Castle. It tells about the world where the Axis countries lose the Second World War, but it still does not look like our universe.
- The authors of the series spent a huge amount of time studying fashion, technology and music to create an alternative world that combines elements of the culture of Nazism, imperialist Japan and America of the 50s.
- In 2015, in New York, advertising posters appeared with the emblem of the Third Reich, which caused a real scandal - the state governor personally ordered to remove all posters.
- Initially, the project was supposed to be created by the BBC channel back in 2010, then in 2013 work on the project went to the SyFy channel, and in 2014 to Amazon, and only then the creators started filming.
- One of the producers of the series was the daughter of Philip K. Dick - Isa Dick Hackett. She said that working on the series was a great honor for her, and the final will impress all fans.
