Showtime adaptation of Under the Dome has gotten a writer.
Originally announced in August, the Steven Spielberg-produced Showtime adaptation of Stephen King's novel Under the Dome now has a writer. Deadline reports that Brian K. Vaughan, a name very well known to genre fans, has signed on to adapt the novel for television.
Vaughan launched his career as a comic book writer and is responsible for series like "Y: The Last Man", "Ex Machina" and "Runaways". He joined the writers of "LOST" midway through the third season, leaving at the end of season five and has, since, been shopping a number of original screenplays around Hollywood. He's set to return to comics next year as well with a new ongoing series, "Saga".
Spielberg, King and DreamWorks' Stacey Snider will executive produce along with DreamWorks TV chiefs Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey.
