Steven Spielberg and Stephen King Join Forces for Showtime's 'Under the Dome' Series Showtime is about to get supernatural. According to a Deadline, the network is teaming with an all-star duo of science fiction talents, novelist Stephen King and producer Steven Spielberg, to adapt King's 2009 novel 'Under the Dome' into a TV drama series.

King's novel focuses on a Maine vacation town that gets surrounded by a mysterious force field, trapping the residents inside and forcing them to fight each other for survival. Think 'The Walking Dead' meets 'The Hunger Games.'

Although Spielberg is perhaps best well-known for his work in movies, in recent years he's also produced several TV shows. He's serving as a producer of 'Terra Nova,''Smash' and 'The River,'which are all due out this fall.

Spielberg is no stranger to working with Showtime, having served as an executive producer on 'The United States of Tara.' His other TV highlights include 'Band of Brothers' and 'The Pacific,' World War II mini-series he produced for HBO.

Similarly, King's literary works have attracted adaptations in both film and TV. His novel 'The Colorado Kid' was adapted into the SyFy series 'Haven.' He also made an acting cameo on Season 3 of 'Sons of Anarchy.' Two of his novellas were the basis for the hit films 'The Shawshank Redemption' and 'Stand By Me.'

Tell us: Are you excited to watch these two science fiction legends working together?
