The Steven Spielberg produced adaptation of Stephen King’s Under the Dome will begin on CBS on 24th June, and the first TV spot aired, naturally, on CBS during Sundays Super Bowl.
The TV spot served no purpose other than to let people who may not have been aware, know it is coming. There is no footage, just simply an animated clip of the novels cover, showing what is about to happen. However, the TV spot does show off the shows official website, and you can head to the eerie site and put your own house Under the Dome if you’d like!
Niels Arden Oplev, who helmed the original Swedish version of “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” will direct the first segment. Britt Robertson, Natalie Martinez, Colin Ford, Alex Koch, Jolene Purdy and Nicholas Strong star. Lost writer Brian K. Vaughan is the shows creator.
Here is the synopsis for the show:
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.
