CBS' adaptations of 's Under the Dome is only a few weeks from premiering, which means we're going to (hopefully) be seeing a lot more from the series. Right now, there are four character posters that show how trapped the characters are. If you haven't read the book, it may sound just like The Simpsons movie, but it's actually ripe for a TV series. There are over a hundred characters from a variety of backgrounds - ranging from an Iraq vet to a corrupt politician - are trapped inside.
Here's the Under the Dome official synopsis:
UNDER THE DOME is the story of a small town that is suddenly and inexplicably sealed off from the rest of the world by an enormous transparent dome. The town’s inhabitants must deal with surviving the post-apocalyptic conditions while searching for answers to what this barrier is, where it came from, and if and when it will go away.

Here are the Under the Dome character posters (I've also included character descriptions):
** as Barbie**
Barbie, a drifter, ex-army, walks with a burden of guilt from the time he spent in Iraq. Working as a short-order cook at Sweetbriar Rose is the closest thing he’s had to a family life. When his old commander, Colonel Cox, calls from outside, Barbie's burden becomes the town itself.
** as Jim Rennie**
"Big Jim." A used car dealer with a fierce smile and no warmth, he'd given his heart to Jesus at age sixteen and had little left for his customers, his neighbors, or his dying wife and deteriorating son. The town's Second Selectman, he’s used to having things his way. He walks like a man who has spent his life kicking ass.
** as Angie**
Frank DeLesseps' fiance... Let's just say since she has her own poster, she may have more to do in the TV series than the book.
** as Julia**
The attractive Editor and Publisher of the local town newspaper, The Chester's Mill Democrat, Julia is self-assured and Republican to the core, but she is drawn to Barbie and discovers, when it matters most, that her most vulnerable moment might be her most liberating.
