Creating new worlds for Amazon’s The Man in the High Castle

What if Germany and Japan had won World War II? What would the world look like? That is the premise of Philip K. Dick’s 1963 novel and Amazon’s series, The Man in the High Castle, which is currently gearing up for its second season premiere later in the year. The Man in the High Castle features familiar landmarks with unfamiliar touches. For example, New York City’s Times Square has its typical billboards, but sprinkled in are giant swastika banners, images of Hitler and a bizarro American flag, whose blue stripes have been replaced with yet another swastika.
