Currently living out his own childhood dream on the set of Star Wars, J.J. Abrams is now moving on to fulfill the childhood dreams of others, like John F. Kennedy's youthful dream to not be horrifically murdered. The busy producer is teaming with Stephen King and Parenthood executive producer Bridget Carpenter on an adaptation of King's 11/22/63, Hulu today announcing that the novel will play out as a nine-hour event series. Abrams optioned the book over a year ago, and Carpenter is adapting the story, which sees a high school English teacher travel back in time in an attempt to stop Lee Harvey Oswald from killing JFK. Despite being set up as a single-season run, it's reported Hulu already "is open to additional seasons, possibly focused on other historic events." So great, now of course we're gonna have to watch until someone dropkicks baby Hitler.
