What’s It About: The small town of Chester’s Mill receives a big surprise when a strange and impenetrable dome suddenly falls around the town, cutting the residents off from the rest of the word.

Trapped beneath the dome are a wide array of characters including an army veteran on a mysterious mission, an investigative reporter, a visiting LA entertainment attorney and a DJ with a dark secret. As the days wear on tempers are frayed, alliances formed and food runs out.

Based on the hefty Stephen King novel of the same name, Under The Dome follows the town’s first two weeks in isolation. But who – or what – created the dome in the first place? And what is its purpose?
