We've already seen a couple of teasers for Under the Dome, but none contained footage from the actual episodes. The series has been filming for a month now and we finally get to see episode footage from a "first look" video released by CBS that also features Stephen King talking about the adaptation.

Production started late last month in Wilmington, NC and the first episode will premiere on Monday, June 24th at 10:00 pm. The series stars Mike Vogel, Rachelle Lefevre, Dean Norris, Natalie Martinez, Britt Robertson, Alexander Koch, Colin Ford, Nicholas Strong, Jolene Purdy and Aisha Hinds. The first episode has been directed by The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo director Arden Oplev.

For those that haven’t read the 1000+ page novel, Under the Dome was released in 2009 and involves a Maine town that has been cut off from the world by an invisible dome:

“Just down Route 119 in Chester’s Mill, Maine, all hell is about to break loose… On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day, a small town is suddenly and inexplicably sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and rain down flaming wreckage. A gardener’s hand is severed as the dome descends. Cars explode on impact. Families are separated, and panic mounts. No one can fathom what the barrier is, where it came from, and when — or if — it will go away. Now a few intrepid citizens, led by an Iraq vet turned short-order cook, face down a ruthless politician dead set on seizing the reins of power under the dome. But their main adversary is the dome itself. Because time isn’t just running short. It’s running out.”
