Go 'Under The Dome' with TV's Next Great Thriller

Stephen King has repeatedly praised Twin Peaks (the first season, at least) over the years and that was exactly the vibe I got from Under The Dome, CBS' newest series, which was inspired by the author's massive 2009 tome. The book and series take place in Chester's Mill, a fictional "Any Town, USA" location that finds itself cut off from society by an enormous dome that's been mysteriously placed around their city.
And while the "Why?" of it all will inevitably inspire much fan discussion, I'm infinitely more intrigued by the impending internal breakdowns each of the characters will experience after the dome is dropped. Although, some of the characters were headed down dark paths long before someone -- or some thing -- intervened, as you can see in the video above.
Tonight brings the series premiere of Under The Dome, and now you can hear the stars and Stephen King talk about the exciting adventure involved with bringing this book to life!
Under The Dome premieres tonight at 10 p.m. on CBS.
