We're just days away from the June 24 premiere of CBS's Stephen King-adapted summer thriller 'Under the Dome,' and the eye network has served up its first real slice of the series. Two new clips from the new mystery drama have hit the web, and while one teases the tension between the trapped townsmen, the other gets gorier than we'd ever expect to see on CBS!
We've been eagerly anticipating the June 24 premiere of CBS' Stephen King-inspired 'Under the Dome,' which in and of itself boasts a strong cast of recognizable TV players from the likes of 'Breaking Bad' and 'Twilight.'
