    Sounds good. It was a good book. Stephen King has definitely aged since I saw him last.

    Looks good. I didn't know that Dean Morris was in it. I think he's cast well as Rennie, though I think in my mind's eye I envisioned someone more like John Goodman or maybe even Wayne Knight.

    It sounds like an interesting concept. Would it be okay for kids to watch? How much gore/sex did the book have?

    I just started reading it and a lot of gore in the initial dome day activities. But they could make it a lot different if they wanted to for television.

    The YouTube clip appears to show a bloody severed limb...

    There's a rather nasty rape scene in the book.

    Book spoiler, but vague:

    Not to mention what winds up getting stored in the kitchen pantry of one of the homes. That could be pretty gory and scary if it is played right.

    Filming is currently taking place here in Wilmington (tonight actually) until tomorrow morning around 2am.

    Greenfield lake park. The skate park is currently closed and a good size bonfire was burning a while ago.

    June 24 premiere.

    …and remember, it will be on Amazon Prime free streaming too, at about the same time.

    Really, Are they actually providing the streaming version available around the same time as the broadcast similar to how HBOGo does it?

    10PM EDT.

    Or, as CBS refers to it internally, 10PM NYT ("New York time").

    Nice reminder the thread bump. Just used my DirecTV app to set my DVR to record. I really don't need another show to watch. I think my DVR is hovering around 20% free space. I really need to start watching more TV.

    Lately King has peppered his books with snide political comments. Not gonna subject myself to his sucker punches.

    I did love Duma Key though even though as a science guy I don't like supernatural stuff. Loved the setting reading it while I was nearby in FL. When he's on, he's on, but...
