A new promo trailer for the Stephen King and Steven Spielberg-produced series Under The Dome has been released by CBS. It's called "Watchtower" and it offers us plenty of new footage from the exciting looking series.
Brian K. Vaughan of LOST is developing the show, and the pilot episode was directed by Niels Arden Ople (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo). I really enjoyed the book that the series is based off of, and it looks like they did a decent job bringing it to life. I'm excited about this one.
The sci-fi thriller is set to premiere on Monday, June 24th at 10 pm.
On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester’s Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener’s hand is severed as "the dome" comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when—or if—it will go away.
Dale Barbara, Iraq vet and now a short-order cook, finds himself teamed with a few intrepid citizens—town newspaper owner Julia Shumway, a physician’s assistant at the hospital, a selectwoman, and three brave kids. Against them stands Big Jim Rennie, a politician who will stop at nothing—even murder—to hold the reins of power, and his son, who is keeping a horrible secret in a dark pantry. But their main adversary is the Dome itself. Because time isn’t just short. It’s running out.
