CBS has added two more cast members to their 13-episode adaptation of “Under the Dome,” set in a small town suddenly and inexplicably sealed off from the rest of the world by an enormous transparent dome. Per THR, Natalie Martinez (“CSI:NY”), “has been tapped to play Deputy Linda, a young, ambitious deputy who’s isfiercely loyal to Sheriff Duke Perkins, who runs a tight ship in the town of Chester’s Mill.” Alex Koch will play Junior Rennie. The two join previously announced Colin Ford (We Bought A Zoo) in the cast.
In “Under The Dome”, “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.”
“Under The Dome” starts on Monday, June 24 and will air in the Monday 10 PM slot.
