This is one of the most awaited TV shows of the summer: Under the Dome premieres tonight, June 24th, on CBS.
The show follows the residents of Chester’s Mill, a small town, whose lives are suddenly changed when they’re cut off from the rest of the world when a mysterious impenetrable barrier, shaped like a dome, surrounds the town. A small group of people decides to reunite their force to maintain peace and order trying to answer the question: why this dome appeared and how to escape. The show stars some well-known actors such as Rachelle Lefevre (Twilight) and Dean Norris (Breaking Bad).
Under the Dome is the adaptation of Stephen King’s novel published in November 2009. King admitted this novel is a partial rewriting of two unfinished novels he tried to write back in the late 70s and 80s named respectively The Cannibals and Under the Dome. King stated he wanted to focus on how people would behave when they’re suddenly cut off from the society. King exec-produces the adaptation with the help of a science-fiction regular and fans Steven Spielberg via his production companies: Amblin and Dreamworks.
The season 1 has 13 episodes and no announcement has been made about a season 2 yet.
