(MENAFN - Arab Times) Wilmington nc june 27 (agencies): the fictional maine town of chester's mill is 'under the dome' for a second season and author stephen king on whose novel the popular show is based has written the first episode for this summer's run. the cbs miniseries that led the ratings much of last summer returns for another 13 episodes beginning monday (10 pm edt) with king telling viewers that no one in chester's mill is assured of making it through the season alive. 'it's an interesting challenge' picking up a plot after other writers have taken it in new directions king said during a march interview on the set.

'i went back and looked at the last episode twice and i looked at the last scene about 15 times' he said. 'here is where joe and the other teenagers are outside the church. here is barbie on the scaffold with big jim and junior. what is going to happen to these people'

 

working with other writers is different from writing a book that you do yourself king said. 'it's a really collaborative effort and you have to be willing to give up some of your ideas for the other ideas and try to get something everyone is happy with.' in 'under the dome' a dome suddenly encapsulates a small maine town cutting off its residents and in the show's opening cutting a cow in half from the rest of the country leaving them to their own resources to survive. king has touched on the theme of isolation in the past from early novels such as 'the shining' to his 1999 tv miniseries 'storm of the century.'

'people underestimate the power of nature and overestimate the organization and infrastructure of the world' he said. 'those things fascinate me. we live in a fragile society and the infrastructure that holds a lot of it up is very fragile.' he mentioned the ice and snowstorm that paralyzed atlanta last january trapping motorists in their cars some for hours as thousands of vehicles clogged the highways. some people abandoned their vehicles and sought refuge in private homes fire stations shelters and supermarkets. 'that is an under-the-dome situation and you are thrown on your own resources and may have to be 18 or 19 hours inside the cab of a semi-truck' king said. 'i like to see how people react when they are put into a situation not necessarily a survival situation but where you don't have the resources of the government and the outside world.' king sees the mystery as part of the attraction of 'under the dome.' who lowered the dome aliens or was it some type of government experiment that went awry and there's the isolation from the rest of the world. 'i think people like to watch something like 'under the dome' and imagine how they would react' king said.

los angeles: miley cyrus has filled arenas across the globe since her 'bangerz tour' started in february. now she's taking it a step further by beaming her performances straight into fans' homes.

on thursday nbc announced 'miley cyrus: bangerz tour' a two-hour documentary special featuring backstage and performance footage from upcoming concerts at the palau sant jordi in barcelona spain and the meo arena in lisbon portugal. the network promises the behind-the-scenes event will among other things 'examine what makes such a global phenomenon.'

her world tour comes on the heels of last years platinum-certified 'bangerz' album which featured the billboard chart-topping 'wrecking ball.' 'there are few recording artists with the global success achieved by miley cyrus' said nbc executive paul telegdy. 'this unique special will offer an exclusive peek on how she engages with her crew and fans at one of her hugely popular concerts.' we can think of at least one young fan who will likely set her dvr to record: as thewrap reporter earlier shailene woodley is one of cyrus's staunchest defenders. 'the fault in our stars' actress went on record saying 'miley isn't rude or mean or cruel to anyone in her actions. she just does herself. and regardless of whether you agree with what she's doing or not it's none of your business what she does.' 'miley cyrus: bangerz tour' will air on sunday july 6 at 9 pm et on nbc.
