The Television Critics Association’s winter shindig is still under way, and today is CBS’ turn to reveal what it has on its plate. Of interest to horror fans is the network’s announcement of when we’ll be able to see its adaptation of Stephen King’s Under the Dome.
From the Press Release:
“UNDER THE DOME,” a new 13-episode serialized drama based on Stephen King’s best-selling novel and produced by Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment, opens Monday, June 24 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT). “HAWAII FIVE-0″ will move to Friday (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) during the summer.
UNDER THE DOME is the story of a small town that is suddenly and inexplicably sealed off from the rest of the world by an enormous transparent dome. The town’s inhabitants must deal with surviving the post-apocalyptic conditions while searching for answers to what this barrier is, where it came from, and if and when it will go away.
“UNDER THE DOME” is produced by CBS Television Studios in association Amblin Television. Neal Baer, Stephen King, Justin Falvey, Darryl Frank, Stacey Snider, and Brian K. Vaughan, who wrote the television adaptation, will serve as executive producers. Acclaimed director Niels Arden Oplev (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) will direct the first episode.
