Based on Stephen King's bestselling novel and starring a terrific cast, 11.22.63 dives into the unpredictable darkness of the American dream. James Franco stars as Jake Epping, a high school teacher searching for meaning in his life. Encouraged by his ailing friend (Chris Cooper), Jake journeys back to 1960s Texas to prevent the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. As Jake explores the mysteries surrounding alleged assassin Lee Harvey Oswald, his mission is threatened not only by Oswald, but also by a beautiful librarian who steals Jake's heart... and by the Past itself, which doesn't want to be changed. And if the Past doesn't want to be changed, it will push back - violently. This intriguing eight-part thriller from J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot Productions, Stephen King and executive producer/writer Bridget Carpenter offers a mind-bending, emotional thrill ride unlike any other. -- (C) Warner Bros, 2016, USA.
