According to Variety, Steven Spielberg and Stephen King will team up to develop a limited television series based on King’s newly released novel, Under The Dome. DreamWorks TV optioned the book and is apparently intending to develop the series for cable. The story unfolds after an invisible force field suddenly descends on a small vacation town in Maine.
DreamWorks has begun meeting with potential writers for the project.
Spielberg and King previously developed a screen adaptation of King’s 1984 novel The Talisman, which was tabled before becoming a mini-series on TNT a few years ago.
