From Deadline:

James Franco is returning to his TV roots with a starring role in the 9-episode Hulu Original Series 11/22/63, from J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions and author Stephen King.

The thriller, based on the best-selling 2011 novel written by King, is described as an event series, but the streaming service is open to additional seasons, possibly focused on other historic events.  Adapted for television by Bridget Carpenter (The Red Road), 11/22/63 centers on Jake Epping (Franco), an unassuming divorced English teacher who stumbles upon a time portal that leads to 9/9/1958 and goes on a quest to try and prevent the assassination of John F. Kennedy, which occurred on November 22, 1963. But his mission is threatened by Lee Harvey Oswald, his falling in love and the past itself … which doesn’t want to be changed. This has been a passion project for Abrams whose company optioned the book in 2013.
