FROM Brian K. Vaughn
Under the Dome The new CBS hit, Under the Dome , is an adaptation of the Stephen King novel of the same name. Brian K. Vaughn, noted comic book author and former writer/producer of Lost, adapted the novel for Dreamworks which originally wanted it to be a Showtime series. When the project went to CBS' Neal Baer, formerly of Law & Order SVU and ER, came on board to be show-runner. The two talk about working with Stephen King and Steven Spielberg, and argue that broadcast TV can still make compelling, serialized dramas and compete with cable.

He changed that with his show Speechless on ABC. Silveri tells us about looking to his own past for stories, and why he was determined to make a family comedy and not just a "disability show."
