Oct 6, 2014 amazon, hulu, hulu plus, 0 Comments


Hulu announced last week that they agreed on a deal with Stephen King and J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions to air a miniseries based on King’s novel, “11/22/63.”

The fictional story is about a teacher that goes back in time to try to stop the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

Abrams is known for “Alias” and “Lost,” as well as a few movies, including both the recent takes on the “Star Trek” and “Star Wars” franchises.

The miniseries is expected to be a nine-hour series, with the screenplay coming from Bridget Carpenter, who wrote for “Friday Night Lights.”

This is the latest win for Hulu, who is in a battle with both Netflix and Amazon for digital video subscribers.
