Description: Imagine having the power to change history. Would you journey down the “rabbit hole”? This eight–part event series follows Jake Epping (James Franco), an ordinary high school teacher, who is presented with the unthinkable mission of traveling back in time to prevent the assassination of John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963. Jake is willing to live in the past in order to solve perhaps the greatest mystery of the 20th century — who killed JFK, and could it have been stopped? As Jake tries to rewrite history, he discovers that the past does not want to be changed and will do anything to stop him. Hulu.com This will be an eight part mini-series based on the book by Stephen King and produced by J.J. Abrams
Season End Status: This was intended as a close-ended mini-series, not a potential launch to series. But it pulled decent viewership for the streaming service and will likely lead to additional similar productions. 11-22-63 is still available for streaming on Hulu at the link above.
