Hulu has released the trailer for its eight-part event series 11.22.63.
11.22.63 is based upon the 2011 New York Times best-selling novel by Stephen King. It follows high school history teacher Jake Epping (James Franco) as he 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.
Look for 11.22.63 to premiere on Hulu Presidents Day, February 15. J.J. Abrams, Stephen King, Bridget Carpenter and Bryan Burk serve as executive producers. Academy Award-winning Director Kevin Macdonald (The Last King of Scotland, State of Play, Black Sea) directs and executive produces the first two hours.
The series also stars Chris Cooper, Josh Duhamel, T.R. Knight, Cherry Jones, Sarah Gadon, Lucy Fry, George MacKay and Daniel Webber.
