Steven Spielberg and Stephen King are teaming up to create a limited series based on King’s recently released supernatural-thriller ‘Under The Dome.’ Dreamworks TV has optioned the book and is looking to set it up as an event series, likely for cable.
The book 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, but I don’t imagine Matt Groening and James L. Brooks will be considered. They’ve already done a similar project, and it would be silly to rework the material.
