King and Spielberg Team Up For Under the DomeGoon
Stephen King and Steven Spielberg are teaming up once again to bring King's new novel to the small screen, Under the Dome. DreamWorks TV has optioned the book and is looking to set it up as an event series, likely for cable. There have been some reports online that the show was going to be on HBO but they may have fallen through if the trades are correct.
Under the Dome revolves around the drama that unfolds after an invisible force field suddenly descends on a small vacation town in Maine. As the locals fight for their survival, the town descends into warring factions led by enigmatic characters.
DreamWorks is starting to meet with writers for the project. The plan is to set a writer before shopping the skein to prospective buyers.
