8 Things You Need to Know Before ‘Under the Dome’ Premieres on CBS

On June 24, CBS will premiere its new 13-episode series ‘Under The Dome.’ Typically, any scripted show airing on a major network over the summer means it was either a) canceled and burning off its extra episodes, or b) wasn’t good enough to make fall schedule and got pushed back to a less competitive time. ‘Under The Dome’ is a notable exception to this trend. The anticipated drama/thriller was always intended to air in the summer, and is on track to be a hit. But before you decide whether to commit to over a dozen hours of television, here are some of the details you need to know about the miniseries. [Images: CBS]
