Per TV Guide, “Life Unexpected” and “The Secret Circle” star Britt Robertson has been cast in the summer series, joining the previously announced Natalie Martinez (“CSI: NY,” Death Race 2008), Colin Ford (“Supernatural”), and Alex Koch.
The 13-episode show, which will premiere June 24th, begins shooting in February in Wilmington, North Carolina. Robertson will play Angie, an attractive young waitress and aspiring nurse who’s always dreamed of escaping the town. Koch’s character, Junior Rennie, is desperately in love with her.
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 with 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.
