It's going to be a spooky summer on CBS.
In "Under the Dome," a 13-week series based on Stephen King's novel by the same name, a small town is cut off from the rest of the world by an inexplicable clear dome. Nobody knows where it came from, and nobody knows how to get rid of it. Mayhem rules as the townspeople fight for supplies and argue about courses of action. In a new extended sneak peek, King calls it "riveting TV."
"People's eyes are going to bug out of their heads when they see it," the author promises.
The mystery thriller's large cast boasts names like Dean Norris ("Breaking Bad"), Rachelle Lefevre ("Twilight"), Mike Vogel ("Pan Am"), and Britt Robertson ("The Secret Circle"). Behind the scenes, "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" director Niels Arden Oplev helmed the pilot, while TV veterans like Neal Baer ("Law & Order: SVU") and Jack Bender ("Lost") are guiding the production.
