Trailer for CBS' new summer drama "Under the Dome"

With the combination of Stephen King and Steven Spielberg, CBS's new summer drama "Under The Dome," may have viewers trapped from the get-go.

Premiering June 24 at 10 p.m. ET and based on King's novel of the same name, "Dome" is set in Chester's Mill, a small New England town suddenly and inexplicably sealed off from the rest of the world by an enormous transparent dome.

If the plot of the drama -- being produced by Spielberg's Amblin Television -- sounds familiar, look no further than the big-screen adaptation of your favorite television animated family. "The Simpsons Movie" featured a similar plotline when the town of Springfield was also mysteriously encased in a dome.

Something tells me this show will be drastically different than Bart's version. Just a guess.
