Hulu has just released the first trailer for 11.22.63, their new mini-series based on the book 11/22/63 by Stephen King. The novel is one of the best I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading, combining my fascination of time travel and the assassination of JFK. James Franco plays the central character in this drama, the school teacher who goes back in time to prevent the events of that fateful day.
If the mini-series is even half as good as the book, it will be some fine television. I just hope the show will be faithful to the source material and that they don’t deviate too much from the book’s ending… that bittersweet ending. I shall say no more.
