11.22.63 Video: James Franco Finds Danger in Hulu Time-Travel Drama

Hulu on Thursday released another teaser trailer for its upcoming 11.22.63 series, solidifying the notion that the past is a very scary place indeed.

The video shows James Franco as Jake Epping, a run-of-the-mill English teacher who is tasked with traveling through time to stop John F. Kennedy’s assassination.

As cheery music plays and several events unfold in reverse, the promo gives you the eerie sense that things are about to get very dangerous for Epping. After all, as the tagline reminds us, “The past hates trespassers.”

The eight-part series, which is based on the novel by Stephen King and executive-produced by J.J. Abrams and others, debuts on Feb. 15, 2016. It also stars Chris Cooper, Cherry Jones (24), Lucy Fry (Mako Mermaids), T.R. Knight (Grey’s Anatomy) and Josh Duhamel (Battle Creek).
