CBS has cast Colin Ford for their upcoming sci-fi series Under the Dome, which premieres June 24, 2013 at 10/9c.

Based on a novel by Stephen King, the show is set in Chester's Mill, New England. The small town becomes sealed off by a giant transparent dome, leaving the towns folk to fend for themselves in a post-apocalyptic setting. Colin Ford will play the kid genius Joe, who must survive after realizing his parents are outside the barrier.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo's Niels Arden Oplev will be directing the pilot from a script provided by Brian K. Vaughan.

Colin Ford most recently appeared as Dylan Mee in Cameron Crowe's We Bought a Zoo.
