LOS ANGELES (AP) - Stephen King’s time-travel novel about the Kennedy assassination is being adapted as a small-screen miniseries.

Streaming service Hulu said Monday that the nine-hour series, titled “11/22/63” after King’s book, includes the author and J.J. Abrams as executive producers.

King said in a statement that if any of his works cried out for “long-form, event TV programming,” then “11/22/63” is it.

In King’s 2011 novel, a high school teacher goes back in time to try to prevent the Nov. 22, 1963, killing of President John F. Kennedy by Lee Harvey Oswald.

The release date for “11/22/63” and casting weren’t announced by Hulu or producer Warner Bros. Television. The series will be seen in the United States on Hulu and distributed internationally by Warner.
