More details have been released regarding the upcoming FLATLAND TV series, which will star Dennis Hopper.

According to the Associated Press, the program's premise will be about three youths who have been transported to a strange fourth dimensional world where time and space intersect. In addition, Dennis Hopper is said to be set to play the role of a villainous Mr. Smith, who also happens to control this oddball universe.

While talking to the AP, series producer Al Ruddy explained why he sought out Hopper for the Smith role, saying, "Dennis Hopper was the only person we ever thought about for the role. There's a certain mystique to Dennis that is perfect for our show."

Hopper has signed on for 22 episodes of the series, which, as yet, has no U.S. distributor.
