I have been eagerly anticipating the premiere of Steven King’s Under the Dome since they announced it back in November of last year. We now have our first Under the Dome preview to watch which will give those who haven’t yet read the book a glimpse at what the series will be about.
I read the book and I really enjoyed 95% of it. I thought the ending was absolutely awful and I’ll be curious to see if they are 100% faithful to the King novel or if they will take some liberties and improve on the ending that King had written. Let’s hope they do.
Breaking Bad’s Dean Norris (whom you can follow on Twitter here @deanjnorris) has been cast as one of the main stars of the show playing James “Big Jim” Rennie heading a cast not full of big names or huge stars and that too is ok. It doesn’t take big names or huge stars to make a Steven King story successful. The source material itself is usually the star of anything Steven King related and I imagine it will be the case here as well.
Under the Dome will premiere on CBS June 24 at 9:00. Here is the preview:
