Hulu Announces Stephen King’s 11/22/63 Series

Hulu has announced a nine-hour event series production of Stephen King’s 11/22/63 in a collaboration between Hulu and Warner Brothers TV. The series will debut in the U.S. in 2015 and Warner Bros. Worldwide Television Distribution will distribute 11/22/63 globally.

Here is a description of the novel that the series will be based on:

On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died and the world changed. What if you could change it back?

In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King—who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer—takes readers on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

It begins with Jake Epping, a thirty-five-year-old English teacher in Lisbon Falls, Maine, who makes extra money teaching GED classes. He asks his students to write about an event that changed their lives, and one essay blows him away—a gruesome, harrowing story about the night more than fifty years ago when Harry Dunning’s father came home and killed his mother, his sister, and his brother with a sledgehammer. Reading the essay is a watershed moment for Jake, his life—like Harry’s, like America’s in 1963—turning on a dime. Not much later his friend Al, who owns the local diner, divulges a secret: his storeroom is a portal to the past, a particular day in 1958. And Al enlists Jake to take over the mission that has become his obsession—to prevent the Kennedy assassination.

So begins Jake’s new life as George Amberson, in a different world of Ike and JFK and Elvis, of big American cars and sock hops and cigarette smoke everywhere. From the dank little city of Derry, Maine (where there’s Dunning business to conduct), to the warmhearted small town of Jodie, Texas, where Jake falls dangerously in love, every turn is leading eventually, of course, to a troubled loner named Lee Harvey Oswald and to Dallas, where the past becomes heart-stoppingly suspenseful, and where history might not be history anymore. Time-travel has never been so believable. Or so terrifying.

Marvel Unveils Exclusive Sneak Peek of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower: Drawing of The Three – The Prisoner # 1

This September, Stephen King’s fan-favorite Dark Tower epic returns to Marvel for an all-new beginning in The Dark Tower: Drawing of The Three – The Prisoner #1! Today, Marvel is proud to present your new, lettered look at the highly anticipated first issue. New York Times Bestselling writers Peter David & Robin Furth along with critically acclaimed artist Piotr Kowalski and colorist Nick Filardi present an all-new spin on King’s dark fantasy magnum opus that will keep even the most die-hard fans on their toes!

As King’s saga moves into the second volume, The Drawing of the Three, the action shifts from the dusty plains of Mid-World to the mean streets of New York City! Fans will meet Eddie Dean – an innocent child who grows into a troubled young man with a powerful gift: the ability to unlock doors to other realms. But forces conspire against Eddie – and he must overcome his inner demons if he is to rise up and challenge the Man in Black. Witness the story of a man on his path to destiny and the most important journey of his life

“This is the ‘All-New Marvel NOW’ version of The Dark Tower. We’re now refocusing our spotlight to explore the events that led to the formation of the Ka-Tet that aided the gunslinger Roland Deschain on his quest,” said editor Bill Rosemann. “But instead of encountering Eddie Dean later in his life, as you do in the novel, we zoom back to 1964 and meet him as a toddler, so while we are adapting the second novel, we’re also weaving together events in a new way that will surprise everyone who has already read the book. We’re ‘assembling the Avengers’ of the Dark Tower universe, but Robin Furth, Peter David, Piotr Kowalski and Nick Filardi are doing so in a way that you’ve never imagined.”

Filled with all the drama, pathos and horror you’ve come to expect from master storyteller Stephen King, no fan should miss out on The Dark Tower’s triumphant return to comics. Perfect for new and long-time fans, a bold new chapter begins in The Dark Tower: Drawing of The Three – The Prisoner #1 – on-sale September 3rd!
