Watch: Trailer for CBS's Summer Miniseries 'Under the Dome' Shows a Town Mysteriously Cut Off From the World

Hold your jokes about "The Simpsons Movie" -- the makers of CBS's summer miniseries adaptation of Stephen King's novel "Under the Dome" are already aware of the similarities in plot between the two properties, and are planning to give the Simpsons a shout-out. Unlike the Springfield saga, the 13-episode series, which will start June 24 at 10pm, is very serious -- it'll tell a dramatic tale of Chester's Mill, Maine, which finds itself suddenly cut off from the rest of the world by an impenetrable transparent barrier. Danish "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" director Niels Arden Oplev helmed the first episode, with Neal Baer acting as showrunner. Mike Vogel ("Bates Motel"), Rachelle Lefevre ("Twilight") and Dean Norris ("Breaking Bad") are among the cast members. Check out the trailer, which easily looks better than CBS's promos for its new fall shows, below.

    Thanks for giving the people a chance to enjoy some things, considering so much has been taken away from us in the passed few years. It's refreshing to find a company with a heart.
