There’s a new horror/sci-fi series coming to CBS in June. Right now, there isn’t a lot of information available about the show, but it’s created by Brian K. Vaughan (whose prior writing credits include the wonderful graphic novel Y: The Last Man, and he also produced a handful of Lost episodes) and horror mastermind Stephen King. In the show, some kind of force field pops up around a small town. IMDb says it’s an invisible force field, but look at that picture up there. Looks pretty visible.
Anyway, a recent teaser trailer features music by Sia. Sia is usually pretty upbeat and dancey, but here she’s a little bit more somber. It’s a bonus track from here breakout album We Are Born and features sparse piano and vocals. The acoustic version of “I’m In Here” is pretty perfect for a show about people who are stuck in a dome and can’t communicate with anyone outside. In the teaser, the lyric “I’m in here, can anybody hear me?” is followed closely by the fireman telling that female cop, “I can’t hear you.” Nailed it.
The teaser is only 20 seconds long, and the people behind the show are doing a pretty good job about keeping things under wraps. But it is an interesting premise and based strictly on Vaughan and King’s involvement I will probably be tuning in come the summer just to see what it’s all about. It’s got potential.
What do you think? Will you be tuning in in June? Can sci-fi really be done well on network TV? Let us know in the comments and check out the teaser video below.
