UNDER THE DOME

Series Dean Norris breaks bad as a power-hungry official whose town is mysteriously sealed off from the world (see title; see sliced cow). CBS' summer smash, adapted loosely from the Stephen King story, drew ratings high enough to earn a second-season order.

Extras Featurettes focus on pilot production, book-to-TV transition, more. (Amazon.com's $80 Blu-ray limited edition comes in plastic-domed package with added extras: King location visit, special effects, more.)

List price $55 DVD/$65 Blu-ray in dome-cut hardboard box, out today from CBS.
