J.J. Abrams is the executive producer for a new Hulu series, 11.22.63.
11.22.63 is an eight-part, nine-hour adaptation of Stephen King‘s novel of the same name.
In 11.22.63, Jake Epping (James Franco) goes back in time to prevent the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
“This is a book that I loved long before Stephen King reached out and asked if I’d be interested in getting involved to produce it,” said Abrams. He added that he felt “incredibly lucky to be working with Hulu. They’ve been remarkable and incredibly collaborative and as excited about this as we were. And that really is why we ended up there.”
11.22.63 will begin streaming on Hulu on February 15.
