Showtime, the pay cable network is partnering with Steven Spielberg and Stephen King for "Under The Dome," a drama series based on King’s 2009 novel, which will be produced by DreamWorks Television.
'The supernatural thriller revolves around locals at a Maine vacation spot who battle one another when a force field suddenly surrounds their town and cuts them off from the rest of the world.'
Spielberg and Stacey Snider grabbed the rights to the novel shortly after it's release and a writer is underway for the project. Spielberg has a longstanding relationship with King. He previously teamed with the bestselling author to adapt his 1984 novel The Talisman, which was originally developed as feature and then as a miniseries that was once set up at TNT.
