'Under the Dome': Britt Robertson of 'The Secret Circle' cast as Angie in the Stephen King show
The star of "The Secret Circle" and "Life Unexpected," Robertson's new character is a pretty, young waitress. Angie has always dreamed of leaving her small town of Chester's Mill and studying to become a nurse. That is most likely not going to happen once the events of the TV show begin.
Robertson join a few other parts that have been cast for the series. Alexander Koch will play the role of Junior Rennie, the disturbed young man who loves Angie, Natalie Martinez ( "Detroit 1-8-7") is Linda, a sheriff's deputy desperate to keep order, and Colin Ford ( "Supernatural") will play an intelligent teen in the town.
"Under the Dome" will air on CBS this summer as a 13-part series. The story is based on a book of the same name by Stephen King and focuses on a small town that suddenly and inexplicably gets cut off from the outside world by a transparent dome. As time passes, the townspeople try to figure out a way to escape while even survival becomes an issue.
Steven Spielberg is producing the show, which could extend to additional seasons if successful.
