Hulu’s eight-part event series “11.22.63,” based on Stephen King’s 2011 novel of the same name, kicks off on President’s Day, February 15th; and to help get you ready for it, we have a behind-the-scenes video to share that features King, executive producer J.J. Abrams, and star James Franco.
Hulu’s “11.22.63” is a thriller in which high school English teacher Jake Epping (James Franco) travels back in time to prevent the assassination of President John F. Kennedy — but his mission is threatened by Lee Harvey Oswald, falling in love, and the past itself, which doesn’t want to be changed.
Co-starring are Chris Cooper, Josh Duhamel, T.R. Knight, Cherry Jones, Sarah Gadon, Lucy Fry, George MacKay, and Daniel Webber.
J.J. Abrams, Stephen King, Bridget Carpenter, and Bryan Burk serve as executive producers. Academy Award-winning director Kevin Macdonald (Last King of Scotland, State of Play, Black Sea) directs and executive produces the first two hours.
