Streaming service Hulu has handed out a straight-to-series order for the nine-hour event series “11/22/63”.
Warner Bros. Television and J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions will produce the adaptation of Stephen King’s 2011 novel about a high school English teacher who travels back in time to prevent the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
His mission is soon threatened by Lee Harvey Oswald, his falling in love and the past itself which doesn’t want to be changed.
Bridget Carpenter (“Friday Night Lights,” “The Red Road”) will pen the script and executive produce the drama alongside King and Bryan Burk.
