Stephen King's 'Under the Dome' gets CBS series order

»insidetv.ew.com/2012/11/29/under ··· ome-cbs/
quote:
Stephen King is coming back to broadcast TV. CBS is giving the author’s Under the Dome a 13-episode series order.

Based on King’s bestselling novel, Under the Dome is the story of a small New England town that’s suddenly and inexplicably sealed off from the rest of the world by an enormous transparent dome. The town’s residents need to survive the deteriorating post-apocalyptic conditions while searching for answers to what this barrier is, where it came from, and how to make it go away.
The series will broadcast in the summer of 2013

Since it's on CBS it'll be censored .

This really should be on Syfy. It'd be a good companion for Haven.

While I have not read the book, I at times tend to think HBO would be better.

However Network TV did do a great job with The Stand.

Once Upon a Time, also is similiar in this vein.

Fans of the novel shouldn’t expect an exact retelling of the same story. Last we heard, writer Brian K. Vaughan’s (Lost) script for Dome was wisely using the novel’s 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 novel’s 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

I will give it a shot. Haven't read the book and probably wont since I find horror books to be really boring. But it sounds interesting. Someone put a reminder out when they see the air dates announced.
