Vaughan and Neal Baer, accompanied by stars Rachelle Lefevre, Dean Norris, and Mike Vogel, hit the Comic-Con stage to discuss the current season, provide insight into the characters, and tease what’s coming up in future episodes.  Hit the jump for highlights from the panel.

Based on Stephen King’s best-selling novel, the CBS drama series Under the Dome is about the small town of Chester’s Mill, which is suddenly and inexplicably sealed off from the rest of the world by a massive transparent and indestructible dome.  Separated from friends and loved ones, and with resources dwindling, the residents will have to learn how to get along and survive.  Produced in association with Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television, the show stars Mike Vogel, Rachelle Lefevre, Dean Norris, Natalie Martinez, Britt Robertson, Alexander Koch, Colin Ford, Nicholas Strong, Jolene Purdy and Aisha Hinds.

During this recent interview to promote the show’s premiere, executive producers Neal Baer (who is also the showrunner) and Brian K. Vaughan (who is also one of the writers) talked about how the show became what it is now, using the source material as inspiration, how much of an arc will be resolved by the end of the season, why they wanted Dean Norris (Breaking Bad) for the role of Big Jim Rennie, how Natalie Zea (Justified, The Following) will come into the story, later in the season, just how graphic and dark the show will get, exploring political themes, and whether Stephen King might make one of his famous cameo appearances.  Check out what they had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers.

Vaughan.  With some cool effects, interesting twists and intriguing ideas, it’s definitely a show worth tuning into when it premieres on June 24th.  During the Q&A, the two talked about what it’s like to have Stephen King and Steven Spielberg’s involvement with the show, how different the end will be from the novel, that so far each episode is the equivalent of one day, how viewers will get some answers by the end of the 13-episode first season, that there will be character deaths, and how there will continue to be some cool effects throughout the season.  Check out what they had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers.
