Stephen King's book Under the Dome is coming to television this summer in a series of the same name. Chester's Mill becomes cut off from the rest of the world when a force field-type dome mysteriously appears over the town. Its residents must deal with and try to survive without any outside resources, while trying to figure out what caused the dome.

Under the Dome is a 13-episode special event airing this summer. Stephen King calls it "riveting TV." Take a look and see for yourself. Check out the first preview with footage from the series.
