Publish date:

Showtime is partnering with Steven Spielberg and Stephen King to develop a drama series based on King's 2009

novel, Under the Dome.

The series, produced by DreamWorks Television, will follow locals in a Maine town that is suddenly surrounded by a force field that prevents them from reaching the outside world. King will serve as executive producer, alongside Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank from DreamWorks.

King previously worked with Spielberg on the development of his and Peter Straub's novel The Talisman into a miniseries for TNT in 2006, but the project was cancelled due to budget issues
