Stream 11.22.63 On Hulu
Need something new to stream on Hulu, Netflix or Amazon? Try 11.22.63 on Hulu. James Franco stars in the eight-part event series based on the book of the same name by Stephen King.
11.22.63 premiered back on February 15. It was not a coincidence that the day also happened to be Presidents Day. James Franco stars as high school teacher Jake Epping, who is shown a time portal back to October 21, 1960 by his cafe-owning friend shortly before he dies of cancer. Al, the cafe owner, asks Epping to travel back in time and prevent the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
Stephen King released 11.22.63 back in November of 2011. The book won a 2011 Los Angles Times Book Prize and is now available in paperback. The New York Times called King’s book “one of the best time-travel stories since H.G. Wells.”
The production team that adapted King’s book for the screen, which includes King, Franco and J.J. Abrams, took a few liberties with the story to make for an easier transition for audiences. For instance, Jake Epping traveled back to September 9, 1958 in the book. King explained to Yahoo! that the change was necessary for the timeline of the Hulu series. King didn’t write the script for the Hulu adaptation. That task was given largely to Bridget Carpenter, who previously wrote for Friday Night Lights and Parenthood.
Hank Stuever of The Washington Post gave Hulu’s 11.22.63 a glowing review back in early February. They called the series both “impressively stout-hearted” and”fun and easily absorbing.”
