What happens when a tiny town wakes up to find themselves sealed off from the world by a giant clear dome? How could a community exist inside the isolation chamber? Who would do this to a sweet little place? Naturally it’s Stephen King that’s behind the evil. The thirteen part mini-series has been addictive fun. The show does make fun of its similarities to The Simpsons Movie. The series is slated for three different home video variations including a Dome Set. Here’s the press release from CBS Home Entertainment:
HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (July 21, 2013) – The hit summer CBS miniseries UNDER THE DOME will be released on Blu-Ray Disc and DVD on November 5, it was announced today during the “Under The Dome” panel with cast and producers at San Diego Comic-Con International 2013.
