The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo director Niels Arden Oplev will direct the first episode. The scriptwriting team for the project included Neal Baer, Stephen King, Justin Falvey, Darryl Frank, Stacey Snider and Brian K. Vaughan; they will all work as executive producers on the project.  Simon & Schuster (part of the CBS corporation) will re-release of the trade paperback and eBook through the Pocket Books imprint.

Here’s more from the release: “UNDER THE DOME is the story of a small New England town that is suddenly and inexplicably sealed off from the rest of the world by an enormous transparent dome.  The town’s inhabitants must deal with surviving the post-apocalyptic conditions while searching for answers to what this barrier is, where it came from and if and when it will go away.”
