Series is Based on the Bestselling Novel by Stephen King
“Pilot” – When the residents of Chester’s Mill find themselves trapped under a massive transparent dome with no way out, they struggle to survive as resources rapidly dwindle and panic quickly escalates, on the series premiere of UNDER THE DOME, Monday, June 24 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
Niels Arden Oplev (“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”) directed the premiere episode.
UNDER THE DOME, a new 13-episode serialized drama based on Stephen King‘s bestselling novel, is the story of a small town that is suddenly and inexplicably sealed off from the rest of the world by an enormous transparent dome. The town’s inhabitants must deal with surviving the post-apocalyptic conditions while searching for answers about the dome, where it came from and if and when it will go away.

And when I say – it comes from, I mean that Burnett will direct the whole thing, and the movie will be based on his own novel of the same name that was published by Vintage Books in 2009.
The movie will center on an emotionally-troubled and imaginative high school graduate who decides to take a year off before college and start a blog as her life begins to spiral out of control. As you already guess, Robertson is on board to play that girl, named Katie Kampenfelt, and just in case you want to hear even more details about this project, here’s an official synopsis for Bunett’s novel:
Beautiful, wild, funny, and lost, Katie Kampenfelt is taking a year off before college to find her passion. Ambitious in her own way, Katie intends to do more than just smoke weed with her boyfriend, Rory, and work at the bookstore. She plans to seduce Dan, a thirty-two-year-old film professor.
