Being the network airing the Super Bowl has its perks. For instance, you can run ads for your own shows for free (I’m assuming). Even better? Since you’re not spending much money airing them you don’t really have to worry about competing with 4 million dollar commercials to get the bang for your buck. You can just air a 16 second animated recreation of a hardback cover! Such is the case with “Under The Dome”, CBS’ 13-episode summer series from Steven Spielberg and Stephen King. Britt Robertson, Natalie Martinez, Colin Ford, Alex Koch, Jolene Purdy and Nicholas Strong star.
They also launched their official website, which is pretty cool as you can see what your own house looks like Under The Dome. If it works for you, that is. I typed in my Mom’s address and it put a dome down around a store a few blocks away.
Based on King’s bestselling novel, “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. Head inside for the teaser!
