Stephen King and Steven Spielberg are developing a drama series based on King’s 2009 novel Under the Dome. The project, which will be produced by DreamWorks Television, revolves around Maine townspeople who battle each other when a force field surrounds their community and cuts them off from the remainder of the world.
King will executive produce along with DreamWorks TV’s Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank. No writer is currently attached.
The duo who previously teamed on The Talisman, King and Peter Straub’s fantasy novel The Talisman was developed into a six-part TNT miniseries in 2006 but the project was ultimately cancelled due to budget concerns.
