New, 17 comments

Hulu has released the first trailer for its upcoming series based on Stephen King's novel, 11.22.63, and it's a doozy.

The mini-series, whose executive producers are King and J.J. Abrams, follows high school teacher Jake Epping (James Franco) as he travels back in time to try and stop the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

During the panel for the show at the Television Critics Association conference on Sunday, Abrams told journalists how he and King became friends and how that led to the series' development.

The mini-series, which also stars Chris Cooper and and Josh Duhamel, is set to debut on the streaming service Feb. 15. Watch the trailer for it above.
