Watch an Extended Trailer for CBS's Under the Dome (VIDEO)

Ever look at those fancy see-through covers that bakeries put over cakes and wonder, "What if I was that cake, trapped under a glass dome!?!?" Well then A) you're weird, and B) your dreams are coming true this summer. CBS is launching Under the Dome, a summer TV series based on the Stephen King novel that details what happens to a small town when it's cut off from the rest of the world by a mysterious, impenetrable force field. 

CBS showed off an extended look at the series at its Upfront presentation on Wednesday, but has now unleashed it on the internet. And you know what? It looks rather awesome.

That's Dean Norris (Breaking Bad), Britt Robertson (The Secret Circle), Rachel Lefevre (Twilight), and Mike Vogel (Bates Motel) starring in the series, which premieres Monday, June 24 at 10pm. Are you tuning in?

I haven't read the book, but from what I saw in the trailer the writers didn't think things through very well. If these people are stuck under a bubble nothing can get in or out of, how does an airplane hit the outside of the bubble, but then lands inside this impenetrable force? If the plane can get in, the people should be able to get out. Someone may need to make some edits before this airs.

I can't wait for this! The book was almost as good as The Stand. At least until about half way through it. Still, it's more interesting than anything out there.

Are you serious? "The Stand" isn't even in the same league as Under the Dome. It's King's masterpiece, he even says it's what was in his mind all his life as her wrote the "other books".

I remember as a kid watching a film from the 60's called The Bubble.
It was one of the first films shot in a very basic 3d......"A young couple, are traveling on a small airplane and are forced to land in a remote town where the people are behaving oddly. They then attempt to escape from the town, but discover that there is a giant glass-like force field bubble around it that prevents anyone from leaving......"

It may be good. But I think this theme is getting overused. The Walking Dead, Revolution, Falling Skies... they all deal with, 'what happens to a small group of people, if they are suddenly cut off from the world they know and have to depend on themselves'. It is in essence just 'Big Brother' all over: An exploration into humanity as it is sequestered from everything known. For better or worse.

I am not saying we've seen enough. But I would like to see something else soon.

Does anyone know the song playing at the end of this trailer? I've heard it somewhere, can't remember where, and it's been driving me crazy.

Looks good, looking forward to this. The book was great (although I wasn't a big fan of the ending!).

I loved the Book. Thank God it's a Miniseries and they don't extend this to many seasons.

I am looking forward to this mini series. I hope it doesn't suck. Sometimes Stephen King stories just don't translate to well to the tv set. But I am thinking it won't be too bad.

Anyone read the Gone Series by Michael Grant? It's similar but with kids without adults.

I'm just happy they changed the story for Britt's character. I didn't want to watch her play a corpse the whole series.

Stupid question(s) but is this a series or a mini-series (miniseries)?
Is there a difference between limited series and mini-series?
I think it looks good for a mini-series....

Well Stephen King is the Homer Simpson of authors so it's basically comes down to the same thing.

"Under the Dome" looks amazing! Yay for Britt Robertson returning to tv! (I STILL miss you TSC) Also - poor cows :(

I can't wait to see this show!

Britt's last CBS Summer series was the great "Swingtown" which this procedural loving network didn't pick up for series - this looks pretty good. May have to actually watch CBS again.

Loved me some Swingtown and Britt too...

Lana Parrilla had to settle for that piece of crap on ABC when she was so damn good in "Swingtown". TV gods are just cruel bastards. Molly Parker and Miriam Shor were great on that as well as were the guys, Josh Hopkins and Jack Davenport and the most surprising ray of light, Grant Show. Plus the young kids in the cast didn't suck. It was great storytelling, something CBS will NEVER be accused of harboring a lot of and then it was just gone. Rachelle LaFevre who played the young trader trying to compete with the men in "Swingtown" is also in "Under the Dome".

I never read the book but this looks really good. I think CBS saw that Person of Interest was successful and was like damn, we need more sci fi. Plus with this, I get twice as much Dean Norris this summer. And I love him.

I'll check it out, enjoyed the book. It is reminiscent of King's books that involve a large ensemble of characters caught up in a strange event, ala "The Stand", "Needfull Things" & "Tommyknockers". Not his best but should make for okay summer miniseries viewing.

Please tell me at least one person thinks of digging a tunnel.

That is something that is tried in the books, so yeah, I think they will have to do it in the show too, lest that plot-hole hang over the entire series.

I heard that in the book the tunnel goes through the ground. something I saw on the internet, haven't read the book yet.

I meant dome not tunnel

I don't remember in the book whether when it finally went away it left a huge moat ditch, but no, nobody even tries...

Shut up, dude, they dig a hole like fifty feet deep on both sides. Stop feeding people false information.

Looking forward to this as well as some of the great summer fair like Covert Affairs, more Suits and several others. I read the book and thought it was one of King's better offerings over the past twenty years, along with 11/22/63. The Stand is still my favorite novel of all time and IT was pretty great too.

IT is my favorite novel of all time, the hand of God thing in The Stand was too out there. Still a great book, though. And yeah, loved 11/22/63.

This is the last day, I promise, but I've gotten a few takers for free copies of my new book, A Brief History of Time Travel - lotta Stephen King in here too with something few people know about regarding The Langolies - inspired by Tim's Fringe reviews over the years, and I find most of the commenters on here to be bright and would like your opinions. Especially yours, Tim - use your aunt Agnes' email, I don't care - but email me for a copy. historyoftimetravel (dot com) is the site and email is john at. This doesn't seem to post if I use real links, so figure it out, you're all smart.

Crap, typo on Langoliers - DAMN!

But my experience is a lot of Stephen King adaptations are hit-or-miss.
