About

On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy was killed, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? 11.22.63 follows Jake Epping, an ordinary high school teacher who is presented with the unthinkable mission of traveling back in time to prevent the assassination. Jake is willing to live in the past in order to solve what is perhaps the greatest mystery of the twentieth century. As he tries to rewrite history, he discovers that the past does not want to be changed, and it will do anything to stop him.
Two of the most venerated storytellers working today, J.J. Abrams and Stephen King, join forces with prolific indie force, James Franco to create a gripping time travel tale that is thoroughly entertaining.

The Festival debuts the two-hour pilot of the nine-hour event series, followed by a conversation and Q&A with the filmmakers.
