Dread Central Offers More News On UNDER THE DOME

Dread Central's The Woman In Black has posted a newsy article on the upcoming CBS series, Under The Dome. The series will premiere June 24th.  She discusses the promo video for the series, noting some important highlights.

Here's  what I liked:
The King/Vaughan presentation included a few clips and animatics illustrating how graphic the show might be. People and cows sliced in half by the dome landing, a plane crashing into the dome in mid-air, townspeople ransacking supermarkets and washing their bloody hammers from God knows what kinds of murder.
 King and Vauhan discussed some of the specific sci-fi nature ofthe Dome itself.  People sliced in half, planes blasting into the dome, and if you get too close to it, Vaughan  said "pacemakers will explode out of your body."

And there is this note about a major difference from the book:
The novel only covers a short period of time. The idea of the TV series is not to extend it for a week, but months... It’s going to bring out the best in some people and the worst in other people.”
The full article is HERE.
