Shakeup Behind the Scenes for CBS's 'Under the Dome' THR

Some shuffling has taken place behind the cameras on the CBS summer series "Under the Dome." The Hollywood Reporter's Live Feed reports that Brian K. Vaughan, a writer and executive producer on the show, has left the program.

“Vaughan was handpicked by exec producer Steven Spielberg to adapt Stephen King's best-seller when ‘Dome’ was in development at Showtime,” the story notes. The show was later picked up by CBS, with Neal Baer brought in as the showrunner.

The report adds: “Sources tell THR that it was Vaughan's decision to exit the series; he arced out season two with Baer before his departure. Vaughan penned the pilot episode as well as two other installments, including the season finale, which he co-wrote with Scott Gold. Vaughan's decision to exit the series was described as amicable, with the veteran comics scribe said to be more interested in returning to focus on his graphic novel roots.”

Vaughan’s graphic novels include “Y: The Last Man” and “Ex Machina.”
