'Under The Dome' Promo: Say Goodbye To The Outside World (VIDEO)

CBS has released an "Under The Dome" promo full of new footage as its June premiere grows closer.

The CBS summer series, which is based on Stephen King's novel of the same name, tells the story of a town that suddenly finds itself under a dome. The series hails from "Lost" veterans Jack Bender and Brian K. Vaughan.

"When I read this script, I had the same reaction as when I saw the 'Lost' pilot ... I really wanted to spend time with those characters in that world, and I felt that way about this show," Bender said at the "Under the Dome" WonderCon panel. "When I came aboard and read Brian's first episode, what really excited me were the characters, and this show is really a character show with a sci-fi element as opposed to the other way around. It's really examining people who are trapped in extraordinary situations, inexplicably impossible situations, where, if a dome appeared over Anaheim, what would we all do? It's what we would all do that makes the series great ... Our writing team [has] developed characters that are extraordinarily rich and fascinating to follow under the microscope."

"Under the Dome" premieres Monday, June 24 at 10 p.m. ET on CBS.
