Stephen King Under the Dome

June 24th is right around the corner. That’s the night CBS finally starts its major summer event, Under the Dome. Based on the Stephen King novel of the same name, the show is about a small New England town mysteriously surrounded by an impenetrable dome. Cut off from the world, the people begin to completely change their way of life. Mike Vogel, Rachelle Lefevre, Dean Norris, Natalie Martinez and Nicholas Strong are among the show’s stars.

With the premiere quickly approaching, some new videos about the show have come online. First up is a 2 minute, 30 second clip of the show and second is an interview with King where he talks about the adaptation. All told, there’s about 3 minutes of new footage. Great stuff to get you excited for what’s likely to be network TV’s most talked about show. Read More »
