Under the Dome is an American science fiction horror television series developed by Brian K. Vaughan and based upon the novel of the same name by Stephen King which tells the story of the residents of the small town of Chester's Mill, who suddenly find themselves cut off from the rest of the world by a mysterious, impenetrable barrier that surrounds the town.
As the town begins to tear itself apart through panic, a small group of people attempt to maintain peace and order while also trying to uncover the truth behind the barrier and how to escape from it.
The town's inhabitants must deal with surviving the post-apocalyptic conditions while searching for answers about the dome, where it came from and if and when it will go away.
When the residents of Chester's Mill find themselves trapped under the massive transparent dome with no way out, they struggle to survive as resources rapidly dwindle and panic quickly escalates.
