With the help of Steven Spielberg, it looks like Stephen King’s Under The Dome book may be turned into a television series. 2009’s Under the Dome is being adapted into a new program for Showtime with the help of DreamWorks, which purchased the rights to the book soon after it was published. Under the Dome follows the story of a town in Maine who find that their city has been put under a invisible dome which blocks them from the rest of the world.
Spielberg recently has also been heavily involved in television production, from this year’s Terra Nova and Falling Skies to the recently canceled Showtime series United States of Tara. King is also no stranger to television adaptations. TV shows like Haven, Nightmares & Dreamscapes, and The Stand have all been based on his former works.
