11 22 63

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 »
