Will “Under The Dome” and “24: Live Another Day” both be considered miniseries for Emmy consideration?June 25, 2013 at 8:36 am #282113
24 should be a miniseriesJune 25, 2013 at 10:03 am #282114
They are both miniseries. Want to turn this into the official Under the Dome thread?June 25, 2013 at 3:09 pm #282115
Just read this article on Yahoo TV. This confirms that Under the Dome is not a miniseries, which means it’s probably being submitted as a series.
NOTHING ‘MINI’ ABOUT IT | “This is not a miniseries,” Baer clarified, referencing early reports. “It’s a 13-episode series.” , “Stephen King’s book takes place over a relatively short period of time. But when we first started talking about [to him], he said, ‘When I came up with this idea, I envisioned a town being trapped for years at a time. That’s something that you guys could get to do that I didn’t, and that might necessitate a different ending.” That means fans of the novel can look forward to a completely different conclusion to the saga. “We pitched Stephen a far-out, big-swing [ending] for if we’re lucky enough for this to go several years, and he was so excited about it,” revealed Vaughan.June 25, 2013 at 3:52 pm #282116
Yeah, I’m actually kinda surprised people thought Under The Dome was a mini.June 25, 2013 at 3:58 pm #282117
I never really read too much about it. I just assumed that as a summer “event” with a short order and a high-concept premise lifted from a single book that it was a miniseries.
Good for Dean Norris then getting a new regular role.June 25, 2013 at 4:07 pm #282118
If we’re turning this into the ‘Under the Dome’ thread, then it should be said that they scored an impressive 13 million viewers and a 3.2 in the 18-49 demo. That’s insane for a summer series.June 25, 2013 at 4:08 pm #282119
Brian K. Vaughan warrants attention though. The man is the best comic book writer of his generation. In fact, I only haven’t watched it yet because I have low tolerance for Stephen King, and especially, Stephen King adaptations not done by Kubrick or De Palma.
