Read the FOX’s synopsis of 11.22.63 here:

Starring an exceptional ensemble cast, 11.22.63 hurtles viewers deep into the unpredictable darkness of the American Dream. Academy Award® nominee James Franco (127 Hours) stars as Jake Epping, a high school teacher at a loss with his life, who wants to make a difference and do something meaningful. Encouraged by his ailing friend, Al Templeton (Academy Award® winner Chris Cooper, Adaptation), Jake journeys back in time in an attempt to prevent the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

The story transports audiences into the world of 1960s Texas as Jake explores the multiple mysteries surrounding the alleged assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald (Daniel Webber, Home and Away). But Jake’s mission faces threats not only from Oswald, but also from Sadie Dunhill (Sarah Gadon), a beautiful librarian he falls in love with, and from the Past itself…which doesn’t want to be changed. And if the Past doesn’t want to be changed, it will push back – often violently.

11.22.63 will air on FOX and is available to stream contract free on NOW TV from 10 April. For more news about the biggest TV series, pick up the latest issue of SciFiNow.
