The first footage from the adaptation of Stephen King’s novel Under the Dome has been released. As probably the most anticipated new show coming out this summer, the first look includes scenes from the episodes as well as some behind-the-scenes interviews with King, the creative team, and several of the actors. Not too much has been revealed about the adaptation, but from what could be gathered during their WonderCon panel and this first look, it looks like this could very well be a riveting, suspenseful, and imaginative interpretation of the novel.
King himself has been very involved, but also vocal about his support for the show to deviate from the novel and explore other avenues with the characters and the story. With Brian K. Vaughan (Lost) at the helm of the show and a talented cast that includes Rachelle Lefevre, Mike Vogel, Dean Norris, Britt Robertson, and Keith Harris, I’m expecting a solid and gripping thirteen episodes. The series will premiere sometime in June. Hit the jump for the first look.
