Since we all know Ben Affleck is a little too busy with his upcoming film 'Live By Night' and, of course, playing Batman, the new adaptation of Stephen King's classic horror-fantasy novel 'The Stand' has been in need of a director. After Affleck left the film behind a while ago, the project may have finally found a replacement: Scott Cooper, the helmer behind 'Crazy Heart.'

Well, this should come as no major surprise, considering the debut ratings alone, but it seems 'Under the Dome' has officially booked a lengthy stay in the fictional Chester's Mill. CBS has officially announced that the Stephen King-adapted series will return for a second season of 13 episodes in summer 2014, but will anything about the overall story change now that 'Under the Dome' has escaped the "limited series" bubble?

Much of our interest in checking out CBS's new Stephen King-produced summer drama 'Under the Dome' stems from the series' expansion beyond King's 2009 novel, which took place over the course of several days compared to CBS's multiple seasons.

CBS' upcoming summer series adapting Stephen King's 'Under the Dome' has given out some impressive imagery in its teasers thus far, but none as compelling as the most recent trailer set to a re-arranged version of iconic Bob Dylan classic "All Along the Watchtower." Sure, it borrows a cue from 'Battlestar Galactica,' but a good use is a good use! See for yourself in the newest 'Under the Dome' trailer inside!

The moment CBS announced it would take Stephen King's 2009 thriller 'Under the Dome' to series, certain fans rallied behind a cry of "Simpsons did it" given that the 2007 feature-length adaptation of America's favorite animated family featured a similarly domed premise. Both domes proved mere coincidence, with a 2010 'Simpsons' episode even addressing the similarity, but how will CBS' upcoming summer series pay homage to 'The Simpsons' in turn?

Besides the 2013 Super Bowl, the real excitement last night may have been what was under a dome of a different kind (or not under it, depending on your understanding of electricity), but CBS certainly didn't waste the opportunity to at least get the phrase 'Under the Dome' out there.

In a rare move that sees major broadcast network CBS taking on a show originally developed for pay-cabler Showtime, CBS has announced that it will take to series an adaptation of esteemed horror author Stephen King's novel 'Under the Dome.' The project is to be written by 'LOST's' Brian K. Vaughn, but will it bring in the post-apocalyptic buzz that 'The Walking Dead' and 'Revolution' have managed to pull in? And will it continue beyond the initial order?
