As promised, the extended sneak peek for CBS’s upcoming summer series Under the Dome is here.

Based on the novel by Stephen King, the series will tell the story of a small New England town that is inexplicably cut off from the rest of the world by a strange, transparent dome, leaving the town to deal with both the larger implications of their new predicament (dwindling resources, how the heck it got there) and smaller, character-based conflicts (lovers are split, personalities clash).

This weekend at WonderCon in Anaheim, producer Jack Bender explained, “This is really a character show in a sci-fi element.” Click here to read our full report from the panel and watch the sneak peek below.
