11.22.63 Teaser: James Franco Stars in J.J. Abrams' Time-Travelling Drama

James Franco‘s the kind of guy who’s always willing to do a favor for a friend — even when that favor involves going back to 1963 and preventing the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

Hulu on Thursday released the first teaser trailer for its eight-part miniseries 11.22.63, in which Franco’s Jake Epping, a seemingly mild-mannered English teacher, must travel through time to stop the aforementioned historical tragedy.

11.22.63 also stars Chris Cooper, Cherry Jones (24), Lucy Fry (Mako Mermaids), T.R. Knight (Grey’s Anatomy) and Josh Duhamel (Battle Creek).

Based on the novel by Stephen King, 11.22.63 premieres on President’s Day 2016.
