It’s no coincidence that Hulu announced its big TV series — “11/22/63,” a time-traveling thriller featuring the big entertainment names of producer-director J.J. Abrams and writer Stephen King — on
the day the 2014-2015 network season started. Few are afraid of going head to head with the broadcast networks these days in terms of new efforts or new series.
Today, I am excited to announce that Hulu has greenlit 11/22/63 a new Hulu Original from J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions, acclaimed author Stephen King, Executive Producer/Writer Bridget Carpenter and Warner Bros. Television.
This direct-to-series order marks a monumental deal for Hulu as we partner with J.J. Abrams and Stephen King, two of the most celebrated storytellers of our time. We are thrilled to be working with them and with Warner Bros. Television to bring this unique take on one of the most seminal historic events of the twentieth century to Hulu.
Based on the best-selling, award-winning novel by Stephen King, 11/22/63 will take viewers on a journey back to the day that former President Kennedy was shot and ask the eternal question: what if? Part thriller, part love story, 11/22/63 is a fascinating story that goes beyond the concept of time travel. With the talented team of producers bringing the story to life, we are confident that 11/22/63 will be an event series that our viewers will love.
11/22/63 joins our growing offering of premium Hulu Originals and reinforces our mission to continuously captivate and connect audiences with the stories they love. The series will make its debut exclusively on Hulu. Until then, keep checking back for more details!0
