FALL 2013 TV UPDATES: CHARACTER POSTERS FOR STEPHEN KING'S SF SHOW "UNDER THE DOME"! FIRST TRAILER FOR ABC'S SUPERNATURAL DRAMA "RESURRECTION"


  UNDER THE DOME
CHARACTER POSTERS
In this week's television updates on the new projects coming to TV this Autumn, you can first check out the first character posters for Stephen King's new science fiction series UNDER THE DOME! The show, which has already been sold to more than 100 foreign networks which will make it a worldwide summer television event, starts airing its 13 episodes Monday June 24th at CBS! Set in the not too distant future, UNDER THE DOME tells the story of the residents of the small town of Chester's Mill, Maine, who suddenly find themselves cut off from the rest of the world by a mysterious, impenetrable barrier that unexpectedly falls down from nowhere surrounding the town. As the town begins to tear itself apart through panic, a small group of people attempt to maintain peace and order while also trying to uncover the truth behind the barrier and how to escape from it. Faced with the new situation, the people of Chester's Mill will first experience faith, then fear and then fascism since everything will go wrong under the dome and they will need an iron fist to bring them order! The cast includes Mike Vogel, Rachelle Lavefre and Jeff Fahey!

  RESURRECTION SF SHOW
 WHAT IF YOUR DEAD ONES CAME BACK UNANNOUNCED?
Over at ABC they have released the first trailer for their new Autumn show RESURRECTION. The people of Arcadia, Missouri are forever changed when their deceased loved ones suddenly start to return. An 8-year-old American boy (Landon Gimenez) wakes up alone in a rice paddy in a rural Chinese province with no idea how he got there. Details start to emerge when the boy, who calls himself Jacob, recalls that his hometown is Arcadia, and an Immigration agent, Martin Bellamy (Omar Epps), takes him there. The home he claims as his own is occupied by an elderly couple, Harold (Kurtwood Smith) and Lucille Garland (Frances Fisher), who lost their son Jacob more than 30 years ago. While they look different, young Jacob recognizes them as his parents. Those closest to the family try to unravel this impossible mystery, including Sheriff Fred Garland (Matt Craven), whose wife Barbara drowned 30 years ago while trying to save Jacob. But this boy who claims to be the deceased Jacob knows secrets about his own death that no one else knows — secrets that Fred’s daughter, Gail (Devin Kelly), will begin to investigate and discover to be true!

    1. it kept me too on the edge of my seat :)

      I will probably spotlight the royal wedding in Sweden later this Monday :) to bring a bit of glitz into the boring ol' beginning of the week.

    3. It doesn't look so bad ~ I would have preferred her hair down and curly, this one makes her look older ~ Looking forward to it ~

    4. yep, she looks much better with her hair down and with her old golden hair not this dark colour.

  7. Considering almost everyone I know didn't like King's Under the Dome, I'm surprised they decided to make a series out of it. The premise sounds a lot like "Haven" though, nad that's very interesting. Nonetheless, I love SF and Horror, so I'm looking forward to watching both new series. :-)

  8. I loved The Dome and I think it could make a great series - if they do it right, which they tend not to when it comes to SK. As for Resurrection, that trailer made me wish for satellite tv again *sigh*

  9. Under the Dome sounds like the Simpson's movie...

  10. so it's like both shows have this thought of... having your cake and eating it too..

    1. let us elaborate on that theory, doctor professor Jeremy

    2. cake is always fresh if kept under the dome... and if you should die and get brought back... then it's the best of worlds.

    3. extremely wise theory, professor Retro, this could be applied in the mass production of city domes and we already have a market for them with some Western tyrants.

  11. Thanks for the info on Dome. I'll be watching for it.
    Have a great day, Dez.

  12. These look so good. I especially love just about anything from Stephen King.

  13. Under the Dome...can't wait. Although must finish reading the book first. Did you know, Stephen King didn't know anything about the Simpson Movie when he was writing UTD. He had no idea that the movie had the same idea until after the book was published and people started bombarding him with questions regarding it's similarity. Oops...lol.

    1. I watched the Simpson's movie ( I remember it was terrible) but I don't remember any dome, even though I see you people mention it :) Says a lot about how much the film was impressive LOL
      Hope the show will be good!

  14. Under the Dome is going to rock and I am really looking forward to Resurrection. Both shows speak to my dark side. ;)

  15. I've always found there's this impenetrable barrier between Selma and me. Maybe I should watch the show to find a solution.

    Dead loved ones coming back? So it's like with the dead cat but only different?

    1. who's Selma? Selma Bouviere, Marge's chain smoking sister?

  16. No the Mexican one.... I don't like women who smoke. I'd rather stick my tongue in an ash tray.
