As previously announced, UNDER THE DOME, last summer's #1 program and the most-watched scripted summer series in 21 years, returns for its sophomore season on Monday, June 30 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT). The premiere episode will be written by Stephen King, on whose bestselling novel the series is based.

The summer event series EXTANT, starring Academy Award winner Halle Berry, will now premiere Wednesday, July 9 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) instead of its previously announced July 2 debut.


BIG BROTHER follows a group of people living together in a house outfitted with more than 53 cameras and 97 microphones, recording their every move 24 hours a day. Each week, the Houseguests will vote someone out of the house. At the end, the last remaining Houseguest will receive the grand prize of $500,000.

BIG BROTHER is produced by Emmy Award-winning producer Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan for Fly on the Wall Entertainment, in association with Endemol U.S.A.

The series is produced by Sony Television Studios in association with CBS Television Studios. Sarah Timberman, Carl Beverly, Ed Redlich, John Bellucci and Ed Decter are executive producers.


RECKLESS is set in Charleston, S.C., where a gorgeous Yankee litigator and a charming southern attorney must hide their intense mutual attraction as a police sex scandal threatens to tear the city apart.

RECKLESS stars Anna Wood, Cam Gigandet, Shawn Hatosy, Adam Rodriguez, Georgina Haig, Kim Wayans, Gregory Harrison and Michael Gladis. Dana Stevens, Kim Moses, Ian Sanders, Corey Miller and Catherine Hardwicke are executive producers for CBS Television Studios.


UNDER THE DOME tells 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.

UNDER THE DOME stars Mike Vogel, Rachelle Lefevre, Dean Norris, Eddie Cahill, Alex Koch, Nicholas Strong, Colin Ford, Mackenzie Lintz, Karla Crome, Aisha Hinds, Natalie Martinez and Britt Robertson. UNDER THE DOME is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Amblin Television.

EXTANT stars Halle Berry, Goran Visnjic, Camryn Manheim, Michael O'Neill, Hiroyuki Sanada, Pierce Gagnon and Grace Gummer. EXTANT is a co-production of CBS Television Studios and Amblin Television.
