CBS has announced its summer schedule, including the premiere date of its eagerly anticipated adaptation of Stephen King’s bestselling novel Under the Dome and the return of resurrected crime procedural Unforgettable.

Dome is set in a New England town that’s abruptly sealed off from the rest of the world by a mysterious invisible force field. CBS teased up Dome for TV critics at the network’s press tour session in Pasadena on Saturday with a reel that included interviews with King and showrunner Brian K. Vaughan (Lost). “It’s really exciting to take the book and possibly expand it,” King said. “That’s what TV is for … TV is an expansive medium.” King said he’s particularly pleased to have Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment producing the show. “I’ve always wanted to work with Steven,” King said. “Our view of American life is similar … we both see the extraordinary in ordinary things and people.”

The first trailer for Dome’s 13-episode debut season will air during CBS’ coverage of the Super Bowl next month. The network’s entertainment president Nina Tassler said that the first season will conclude with a major piece of plot information being revealed.

Helping fill out out CBS’ summer lineup: Imported reality competition series The Great British Bake Off and an expanded Big Brother that’s returning earlier than usual. Here’s the schedule, below.
