11-22-63

The nine-hour event series is from J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions (Cloverfield, Person of Interest, Fringe, Lost), executive producer/writer Bridget Carpenter (The Red Road), Warner Bros. Television, and the author, Stephen King. No premiere date was given. For further details, follow the jump.

Under the Dome: Bright Lights, Temperamental Dome!

02

Last summer’s biggest hit drama, Under the Dome (CBS, Mondays, 10/9C) returns with an episode called Heads Will Roll – written by Stephen King. It does get around to where the first season cliffhanger left off, but not immediately – if there’s one thing this show does, it’s tease and tantalize.

Under the Dome – We’re All in This Together!

Under Dome

Under the Dome (CBS, Mondays, 10/9C) is based on the bestselling novel by Stephen King and is as odd, creepy and unnerving as you might expect from that pedigree.

Much has been said already, about Syfy’s new series, Haven [Fridays, 10/9C], which premieres this evening. It’s based, loosely, on a short novel by Stephen King – The Colorado King – that featured an unsolved mystery in a town filled with very unusual people.

Into this small town comes FBI Agent Audrey Parker [Emily Rose], who has been assigned to find a local escaped convict. The convict, naturally, has died in what would normally look like an accident if it weren’t for a couple of annoyingly frustrating details. On her way into town, Parker is almost killed when the road in front of here crumbles away, but is saved by Nathan Wuornos [Lucas Bryant], a local detective – a favor that will be returned by the end of the first act.
