If the idea of James Franco and J.J. Abrams collaborating on a new Hulu event series based on a novel by Stephen King wasn’t exciting enough, this epic and incredibly well-done teaser trailer will surely get your heart racing. If you missed the first teaser you can watch it here.
Hulu has now released a second teaser, which shows Franco walking backwards, falling in love and battling a swarm of cockroaches. Based on the New York Times-best selling 2011 novel of the same name, the series will focus on Jake Epping (Franco), a high school English teacher who travels back in time to prevent the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, only to find that “his mission is threatened by Lee Harvey Oswald, falling in love and the past itself, which doesn’t want to be changed”.
Chris Cooper, Josh Duhamell, T.R. Knight, Cherry Jones, Sarah Gadon, Lucy Fry, George MacKay and Daniel Webber will be joining Franco for the eight episode event series which is due for release on February 15, 2016. February can’t come soon enough.
