Lost Scribe Adapting “Under the Dome”

“Lost” scribe and “Y: The Last Man” comic creator Brian K. Vaughan has signed on to pen the series adaptation of Stephen King’s “Under the Dome” for Showtime says Deadline.

The story revolves around the drama that unfolds after an invisible force field suddenly descends on a small vacation town in Maine. As the locals fight for their survival, the town descends into warring factions led by enigmatic characters.

Vaughan was selected after an exhaustive search to adapt the 1,000+ page property which DreamWorks secured the rights to shortly after its publication in 2009.

King, Steven Spielberg, Stacey Snider, Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey will executive produce.
