Hulu’s latest new show is going back in time. But really, the characters themselves will travel back in time.

The streaming network’s special 8-part series, 11.22.63, is an adaption of Stephen King’s 2011 novel of the same name.

J.J. Abrams is producing the thriller, which follows James Franco’s character Jake as he travels back in time to prevent the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

“I’m gonna tell you something that’s gonna seem crazy,” the trailer opens with, to an all black screen. “You go through there. It’s 1960.”

The book took many thrilling twists and turns, including a literary portrayal of Lee Harvey Oswald, who’s long been thought guilty of killing the 35th U.S. President. It’ll be on Hulu, quite appropriately, on President’s Day 2016.
