Stephen King's "Under The Dome" 13-episode miniseries set to premiere on CBS June 24

Finally, a new King miniseries. I loved most of his 90s ABC miniseries, they were a big event and got great ratings, that's why there were so many of them. King's relationship with ABC soured with the ill-fated "Desperation" (2006), when most of the set burned to the ground, costing millions, and then it was scheduled against American Idol and tanked. "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."
