From Amblin Television and based on the bestselling book by Stephen King, Under the Dome is "classic drama executed well" - NY Daily News. The small town of Chester's Mill is suddenly and inexplicably sealed off from the rest of the world by a massive transparent barrier. Staring Mike Vogel, Rachelle Lefevre, Dean Norris, Natalie Martinez, Britt Robertson, Alexander Koch, Colin Ford, Nicholas Strong, Jolene Purdy and Aisha Hinds, the epic story of a town in peril unfolds as the residents struggle to maintain control and ultimately figure out the truth about the dome.
If you're like me (and a LOT of other fans), you're looking forward to a new episode tonight of the CBS Network's show based on the Stephen King novel, Under the Dome
. We previously reported
that the show was up for pre-order at Amazon for an eventual release on DVD ($54.99 SRP), high-def Blu-ray Disc ($64.99 SRP, and a special Limited Collector's Edition
Blu-ray version ($99.99 SRP; see early package art below along with an Amazon button link to lock in your copy of any of those 3 editions). At the time, the studio hadn't yet revealed the street date for this title, but today they let us know it will emerge on November 5th
Now that the show has been renewed for a second season
(yay!), we expect this home video release of the first 13 episodes to become labeled along the lines of "Under the Dome - The 1st Season
"...but the studio hasn't provided that exact title, or finalized package art, so far. We're also still waiting on finding out what the finalized list of bonus material coming with these 4-disc sets will be. However, the studio has informed retailers to expect at least this much in the way of extras: a number of Behind-the-Scenes Featurettes, including interviews with the cast and crew, plus a Featurette titled "Stephen King and Under the Dome
" (described as "a fascinating, rare, and exclusive discussion with author Stephen King about the book and adapting for TV
"). Neat! Stay tuned for updates, as further developments occur.
