Part 1

THE RABBIT HOLE
Premieres Presidents Day, February 15

Jake Epping (James Franco) is burned out and lost. His ex-wife has moved on, his students are always distracted, and his novel went nowhere. Then one of his dearest friends, Al Templeton (Chris Cooper), shows him the “rabbit hole,” a secret time portal that leads back to 1960. Al asks Jake to head back to the past and create a better world by stopping the Kennedy assassination. Jake heads down the rabbit hole to begin his mission - but finds that changing the past is far more dangerous than he ever would have dreamed.


Part 2

THE KILL FLOOR
Monday, February 22

Thrown by the enormity of his goal, Jake decides the one thing he can do to make a real difference is save the family of his friend Harry Dunning (Leon Rippy). Harry’s family was murdered in a small Kentucky town by Harry’s out-of-control father, Frank (Josh Duhamel). But does Jake have what it takes to kill a man - and what are the consequences of violence, even against someone as dangerous as Frank?


Part 3

OTHER VOICES, OTHER ROOMS

Jake finds an unlikely ally in his quest in local drifter Bill Turcotte (George MacKay). He gets a teaching job in a small town near Dallas and discovers romantic sparks with school librarian Sadie Dunhill (Sarah Gadon). Jake constructs a double life - spying at night on Lee Harvey Oswald (Daniel Webber) as the potential assassin within Jake builds. Trailing Oswald takes Jake into the dark side of Dallas, where he realizes Oswald may not be the only threat Kennedy will have to face.

Part 5

THE TRUTH
Monday, March 14

Part 6

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LEE HARVEY OSWALD
Monday, March 21

It’s October 1962, and the gathering storm of threats in Dallas continues to build. Jake must take drastic action to establish the full dimensions of the threat to Kennedy. And amidst it all, he’s hit with an unexpected death and a bitter betrayal from one of those closest to him.


Part 7

SOLDIER BOY
Monday, March 28

The end is near, and Jake is not up to the task. Sadie scrambles to pick up the pieces, but no one
knows the mission as well as Jake. Kennedy and the assassin are on a collision path - but has Jake
changed things enough in the past to alter the course of events? The days are counting down as
11.22.63 draws near.


Part 8

THE DAY IN QUESTION
Monday, April 4

The past pulls out every weapon it has to keep Jake from reaching Dealey Plaza in time to save
Kennedy. If he fails, it could mean death for Jake or others close to him - and if he succeeds, it
could create a world in which he loses everything he’s ever known. What is the cost of doing the
right thing?

From Uproxx:

The long-gestating adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower is back in the news again over rumors that Matthew McConaughey may play the Man in Black and Idris Elba may play gunslinger Roland Deschain. Some people were quick to point out that part of the storyline revolves around character Susannah Odetta Holmes Dean initially hating Roland because he’s white, a storyline that would have to change in the adaptation, assuming it was ever going to be mentioned.

 

King himself had this to say:

Check out the teaser for 11/22/63.  The series will premiere on Hulu.com February 15, 2016.

The nine-hour limited event series stars James Franco as a high-school English teacher who travels back in time to stop the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. “11.22.63” also stars Chris Cooper, Josh Duhamel, T.R. Knight, Cherry Jones, Sarah Gadon, Lucy Fry, George MacKay and Daniel Webber.

Scottish director Kevin Macdonald (“Last King of Scotland,” “State of Play”) directs and executive produces the first two hours.

Hulu will release episodes of “11.22.63” on a weekly basis, as it has done for its other original series. That’s in contrast to Netflix’s binge-friendly strategy of releasing the entire season of a show at once.

The series will be available exclusively to Hulu subscribers on either the $7.99 monthly plan with ads, or the $11.99 commercial-free option

rom Entertainment Weekly:

Time travel may power the story of 11/22/63, but don’t expect to see any flux capacitors in the small-screen adaptation of Stephen King’s bestseller. The series, about high school English teacher Jake Epping’s (James Franco, below) trip back in time to stop the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, focuses more on the era than on the thrills of science fiction. “It’s a yarn,” exec producer Bridget Carpenter says, “but it needs to be seeded in the truth and the reality of the time.”
