LOS ANGELES (AP) - James Franco will star in the small-screen adaptation of Stephen King’s time-travel novel about President John F. Kennedy’s assassination.

Franco’s role in the nine-hour series based on King’s “11/22/63” was announced Thursday by Hulu and Warner Bros. Television.

Franco will play a high school teacher who returns to 1963 to try to prevent Kennedy’s shooting in Dallas. He’s also a producer on the drama from J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions.

Hulu Originals, which announced the “11/22/63” project last September, hasn’t set a release date.
