Just in time for President’s Day, Hulu brings us a time travel series about trying to prevent the Kennedy assassination. Based on the Stephen King book, 11.22.63 stars James Franco as Jake, a modern man who discovers a portal to 1960 in the back of his local diner. With a three-year head start in the past, Jake goes back and tries to stop Lee Harvey Oswald from killing John F. Kennedy.
In January we got to sit down with 11.22.63 showrunner Bridget Carpenter to talk in-depth about the J.J. Abrams-produced time travel drama. New episodes of the eight-part series go live Mondays on Hulu. Carpenter is also adapting Freaky Friday as a stage musical for Disney. Read More »

The pedigree behind the upcoming miniseries 11.22.63 is certainly intriguing. You have Hulu taking another huge step into the the world of original content (consider this a direct parry to Netflix’s constant blows). You have source material from the great Stephen King, whose novel of the same name is the one of the most acclaimed he’s written in years. You have J.J. Abrams on board as an executive producer. And then you have James Franco, that slippery wild card of a leading man, headlining an ensemble stuffed with interesting actors.
The first trailer for the nine-epiosde limited series has arrived and while it’s only a minor tease, it’s certainly going to turn a few heads. There are too many interesting parties involved to not dredge up interest.
Watch the 11.22.63 trailer after the jump.
