CBS is bringing "Under the Dome" to TV. Based on Stephen King's book of the same name, CBS has given a straight-to-series 13-episode order to "Under the Dome" with Steven Spielberg attached as executive producer.
"Under the Dome," which is set to air during the summer of 2013, will follow a New England town that finds itself suddenly -- and without explanation -- sealed off from the rest of the world by a transparent dome. The town's residents wind up living in post-apocalyptic conditions while they search for answers about the dome.
“This is a great novel coming to the television screen with outstanding auspices and in-season production values to create a summer programming event," Nina Tassler, president of CBS Entertainment, said in a statement. “We’re excited to transport audiences 'Under the Dome' and into the extraordinary world that Stephen King has imagined.”
Neal Baer, King, Justin Falvey, Darryl Frank, Stacey Snider and Brian K. Vaughan, who wrote the television adaptation, will serve as executive producers. Niels Arden Oplev will direct the first episode.
No casting has been announced.
