'Under the Dome" coming to CBS summer '13

Hopefully the series won't fizzle out toward the end the way that the novel did...

Quote:
Stephen King is coming back to broadcast TV. CBS is giving the author’s Under the Dome a 13-episode series order.

Based on King’s bestselling novel, Under the Dome is the story of a small New England town that’s suddenly and inexplicably sealed off from the rest of the world by an enormous transparent dome. The town’s residents need to survive the deteriorating post-apocalyptic conditions while searching for answers to what this barrier is, where it came from, and how to make it go away.

...

The series version was originally developed at Showtime. But in an unusual move, the ambitious project jumped from a cable network’s slate to the major broadcaster (more on that below). It’s also a rather unique title for CBS, since the network has been traditionally more wary about betting on serialized dramas than its rivals. But with AMC’s The Walking Dead and NBC’s Revolution, apocalyptic serialized dramas have been delivering large numbers lately.

Fans of the novel shouldn’t expect an exact retelling of the same story. Last we heard, writer Brian K. Vaughan’s (Lost) script for Dome was wisely using the novel’s setup as a launch pad for its own TV-format-friendly version of the story and might even lay the groundwork for a different outcome than the novel’s ending. Also, the CBS version is definitely a series, not a mini-series, with a finale episode that will leave the story open for more seasons.
Bit more info at the link.

my biggest problem with the book. just plain STUPID.
it'll be interesting to watch Hank from breaking bad and see how he behaves.

The writing is pretty poor. I feel sorry for Hank, coming from Breaking Bad to this.
Most of the characters are just cardboard caricatures at this point.

I'll give them a break on the first show. It takes a few shows for the actors to get into their roles, I hope.

Yeah. We'll see how it goes. I'm still interested enough to keep watching (not much else on right now anyway)

But man, "Junior" is awful.
