Mel Rodriguez is a busy guy, with three projects currently airing or coming out in 2018. "The Last Man on Earth" star sits down with Alyssa Julya Smith in Los Angeles to talk about some of his upcoming projects, including Amazon's "Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams," which reimagines the work of famous sci-fi writer Philip K. Dick.
Rodriguez talks about the Amazon show's comparisons to "Black Mirror" in terms of a sci-fi anthology show. Both shows explore fears around communication and the need for individuality versus the collective. Rodriguez points out these programs allow viewers to experience an entirely different topic in each episode.
In addition to his starring episode on "Electric Dreams," Rodriguez is also set to appear in the film "Overboard," starring Anna Faris and Eva Longoria. He cautions fans of the original that the remake is very different, but people will enjoy it all the same.
