Stephen King's brand new book is called Under The Dome, about a town sealed off from the rest of the world. Now Steven Spielberg has stepped in to make sure it's a success. He wants to turn it into a TV serious.

On an entirely normal day in Chester's Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener's hand is severed as "the dome" comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when - or if - it will go away.

Which is all good and well... but, did The Simpsons not do this already ???

For a writer who brought you Killer clowns, mobile phones that turn you into a zombie, The shining, Green mile, and Shawshank redemption, he is actually not the
head case you would presume!
