CBS Teases Us With A Full Trailer For “Under The Dome”

We got our first teaser of CBS’ new series Under the Dome, adapted from Stephen King’s book of the same name, back at the beginning of April but as with most teaser trailers we really didn’t get to see all that much about the show.

Well the other day CBS finally got around to releasing the first ‘official’ trailer for the show that will be premiering in June. While I may have been only slightly interested in April the new trailer has raised the interest level just a bit more.

Here is the synopsis for the show:

On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester’s Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener’s hand is severed as “the dome” comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when—or if—it will go away. Dale Barbara, Iraq vet and now a short-order cook, finds himself teamed with a few intrepid citizens—town newspaper owner Julia Shumway, a physician’s assistant at the hospital, a selectwoman, and three brave kids. Against them stands Big Jim Rennie, a politician who will stop at nothing—even murder—to hold the reins of power, and his son, who is keeping a horrible secret in a dark pantry. But their main adversary is the Dome itself. Because time isn’t just short. It’s running out.
