Re: Stephen King's 'Under the Dome' gets CBS series order
Fans of the novel shouldnt expect an exact retelling of the same story. Last we heard, writer Brian K. Vaughans (Lost) script for Dome was wisely using the novels setup as a launch pad for its own TV-format-friendly version of the story and might even lay the groundwork for a different outcome than the novels ending. Also, the CBS version is definitely a series, not a mini-series, with a finale episode that will leave the story open for more seasons.
I read the book and enjoyed it... the characters were well done... wasn't crazy about the ending... 13 episodes sounds good-the book was crazy long-but I don't see it being drawn into multiple seasons.... they'll have to change it up quite a bit
