CBS ‘Under the Dome': First Footage of the Stephen King-Adapted Series
Folks may be abuzz with all the spring finales and premieres, but upcoming CBS summer event ‘Under the Dome‘ will really have everyone talking. The new 13-episode series adapting Stephen King’s book of the same name will premiere on June 24, but what mysteries cause a mysterious dome to appear out of nowhere and cut off a small town from the outside world? Find out in the first-look trailer for CBS ‘Under the Dome!’
After a rather shy teaser released during the 2013 Super Bowl, CBS and author Stephen King are finally ready to take us ‘Under the Dome.’ The network today gives us a first-look trailer behind the scenes of the new summer series, which premieres on June 24 as an ongoing adaptation of King’s 2009 novel.
Written by ‘LOST’s’ Brian K. Vaughan and with original ‘Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ helmer Niels Arden Oplev directing, ‘Under the Dome’ follows the book of the same name, focusing on a small New England town that finds itself inexplicably encased in a transparent dome with no hope of penetration. Inside, the residents of the town battle increasingly apocalyptic conditions as they struggle to understand what’s happened to them.
In addition to ‘Breaking Bad‘s’ Dean Norris and ‘Bates Motel‘ star Mike Vogel, the cast includes ‘Twilight‘ star Rachel Lefevre, Colin Ford (‘Supernatural‘), Natalie Martinez, Alex Koch, Britt Robertson, Nicholas Strong and Jolene Purdy.
