Fresh off its inspired Super Bowl ad, below, CBS’ “Under the Dome” continues to firm up its cast, adding a “True Blood” alum to its ranks.

Aisha Hinds, pictured, who played psychic Miss Jeanette on the HBO vampire drama, has been tapped to play Carolyn Hill, an L.A. entertainment attorney trapped in Chester’s Mill while driving through town with her partner and their daughter on the way to deliver their teen to a camp for troubled youth, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Based on the book by Stephen King, the summer series follows residents in the Chester’s Mill community as they deal with the postapocalyptic conditions that ensue when a strange dome mysteriously encapsulates the town.

Hinds joins a cast that also includes Britt Robertson, Natalie Martinez, Jolene Purdy, Nicholas Strong, Alex Koch and Colin Ford.

“Under the Dome” premieres June 24 on CBS.
