Today's News: Our Take - Twilight's Rachelle Lefevre Joins CBS' Under the Dome
The series, produced by Steven Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment, is about a small New England town that becomes sealed off from the world by an oversized transparent dome, and will follow the citizens' struggle to survive as they try to learn more about the dome and how to get rid of it.
The Twilight and Off the Map alum will play Julia, an investigative reporter who has just moved to Chester Mills from Chicago with her husband, a doctor at the medical center. Now the editor of the local paper, Julia is more than curious when the mysterious dome descends upon the town.
In November, CBS granted a straight-to-series order of 13 episodes of the sci-fi series. Niels Arden Oplev, who directed the Swedish version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, will helm the first episode. It will be executive-produced by King, Neal Baer, Justin Falvey, Darryl Frank, Stacey Snider and Lost's Brian K. Vaughan, who wrote the adaptation.
