CBS’ UNDER THE DOME, based on Stephen King’s novel, begins its second season Monday, June 30 at 10 PM with an episode penned by King himself. The story concerns the small Maine town of Chester’s Mill, which is abruptly cut off from the rest of the world by a transparent dome that lets no one and nothing in or out. Viewers will recall that the heroic Dale “Barbie” Barbara (Mike Vogel) ended Season 1 framed for murder and about to be executed by despotic town leader Big Jim Rennie (Dean Norris). Without giving away exactly what happens, it can be […]Read On »

UNDER THE DOME (based on the novel by Stephen King) was such a big hit last summer that CBS decided to make it a returning summer series. Who was not rooting for everyone in the town of Chester’s Mill and booing the character portrayed by Dean Morris, James ‘Big Jim’ Rennie? We got a chance to catch up with Dean at the CBS Summer Press Day cocktail party at The London Hotel to talk about his character and see if I could pry any secrets about the new season which debuts Monday, June 30 on CBS and is written by […]Read On »

Cast: Dean Norris, Rachelle Lefevre, Alexander Koch, Mike Vogel, Natalie Martinez, Aisha Hinds, Jolene Purdy, Britt Robinson Writer: Brian K. Vaughn, Scott Gold Director: Jack Bender Network: CBS, airs Mondays @ 10 p.m. Original Telecast: Sept. 16, 2013 Considering UNDER THE DOME already got renewed by CBS for presumably a return in the summer of 2014, the producers apparently thought they could go out with a defined whimper instead of anything resembling a proper cliffhanger season finale. The season finale of the show, entitled “Curtains,” was a complete mess. Whereas the previous last four episodes have actually improved the show […]Read On »

On July 29th a big party was held by CBS/The CW/Showtime for the Television Critics Annual Summer Press Tour at The Event, which is actually the upper parking lot where the department store Robinson’s/May in Beverly Hills used to be. Taking pictures before heading inside it was quite a turnout of stars from the three networks of their new shows and returning shows of the three networks CBS, The CW and Showtime. I probably missed a few as I went in as soon as the cast from the CW new show THE ORIGINALS, a spin-off from THE VAMPIRE DAIRIES walked […]Read On »

At today’s CBS Summer TCA press tour, CBS Corporation President and Chief Executive Officer Leslie Moonves announced that the hit Stephen King summer series UNDER THE DOME will return again next summer. “It’s official, and Stephen King will be writing the first episode of that 13-episode arc,” says Moonves. “We’re really proud of  what UNDER THE DOME has done. It sort of changed the face of summer television. The highest premiere of a drama, since, I think, 1992. It’s the way television should be. It’s the way television can be. Obviously it’s a very different model.” With summer programming being […]Read On »

Cast: Dean Norris, Rachelle Lefevre, Alexander Koch, Mike Vogel, Natalie Martinez, Aisha Hinds, Jolene Purdy, Britt Robinson Writer: Rick Cleveland Director: Jack Bender Network: CBS, airs Mondays @ 10 p.m. Original Telecast: July 1, 2013 “It means (long dramatic pause) … we’re all gonna die in here.”  – Norrie (Mackenzie Lintz) on UNDER THE DOME “The Fire” The thing that cracks me up most about Stephen King made-for-TV specials has always been the acting. Or lack of it. While UNDER THE DOME may be interesting from a pure storyline point-of-view, the acting and dialogue in the first two episodes is […]Read On »
