Hulu's 11.22.63 premieres on Presidents Day in 2016, bringing Stephen King's story of a time traveler working to prevent the JFK assassination to life. The show will debut, and air weekly exclusively on Hulu as their latest original. After some still shots came with the debut announcement, a teaser trailer was released Thursday giving a new look at the series.
It's a chilling teaser, with just a tiny bit of information presented amongst stark shots and quick cuts. It also contains the most important info for fans: JJ Abrams and Stephen King. That's probably worth checking out the premiere for alone, at least. Hulu's official description follows:
Hulu Original series 11.22.63 is a thriller in which high school English teacher Jake Epping (James Franco) travels back in time to prevent the assassination of President John F. Kennedy - but his mission is threatened by Lee Harvey Oswald, falling in love and the past itself, which doesn't want to be changed. Also starring Chris Cooper, Josh Duhamel, T.R.
