Hulu announced they have greenlit a new original mini-series based on the novel 11/22/63 by Stephen King. The show will explore the day former President John F. Kennedy was shot in Dallas, Texas, and ask the question “What if?” throughout the series. According to the Hulu announcement, 11/22/63 will “go beyond the concept of time travel” in its explorations.
11/22/63 will be produced by J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions, along with Producer/Writer Bridget Carpenter and Warner Bros. Television.
