The nine-hour limited event series centers on high school English teacher Jake Epping (James Franco) who travels back in time to prevent the assassination of President John F. Kennedy – but 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 Duhamel, T.R. Knight, Cherry Jones, Sarah Gadon, Lucy Fry, George MacKay and Daniel Webber also star.
J.J. Abrams, Stephen King, Bridget Carpenter and Bryan Burk serve as executive producers. Kevin Macdonald (Last King Of Scotland, State Of Play, Black Sea) directs and executive produces the first two hours.
