Under the Dome is a CBS sci-fi series in which a US town is trapped under an immense, clear dome. It is based on a novel by Stephen King, and produced by Stephen Spielberg — so Norris calls it « Stephen squared« ! — with King to write the first episode of the second series himself.
« The dome itself is a way to look at how people react in a crisis… you see that it’s a fine line that separates civilised people from chaos, » said Norris.
We also asked Norris if there were any similarities between « Big Jim », his Under the Dome character, and Hank Schrader, his world-famous role in Breaking Bad; what it was like to work on that ground-breaking series; and what he makes of social TV inparticular, and social media in general.
