A high-powered Hollywood duo is joining forces to develop a drama series, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Steven Spielberg and Stephen King are working on an adaptation of King’s “Under the Dome” for Showtime. DreamWorks will produce the project, which focuses on a Maine town that is surrounded by a force field and cut off from the rest of the world.
King will exec produce with DreamWorks’ Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank, the story says.
TNT developed King and Peter Straub’s 1984 novel “The Talisman” into a miniseries in 2006, the story notes, but that project was eventually scrapped.
