Jake Epping is a high school English teacher who travels back in time to prevent the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
The past pulls out every weapon it has to keep Jake from reaching Dealey Plaza in time to save Kennedy. If he fails, it could mean death for Jake or others close to him - and if he succeeds, it could create a world in which he loses everything he's ever known. What is the cost of doing the right thing?
High school teacher Jake Epping is shown a secret time portal by his best friend, who begs him to go back to 1960 in order to prevent the Kennedy assassination. But Jake finds that changing the past is far more dangerous than he ever would have dreamed.
Wow!!! Loved this. Chris Cooper is great, I'm not a fan of Franco but he's really good. I read the book when it came out and from this first episode it seems the tv show is going to be just as riveting. I know the book looks like a doorstop but it's a great read, only King could come up with such a fabulous premise for a novel and then have it be turned into a tv show. As he said, a 3-4 hour movie just couldn't have covered everything in the book so a series was the obvious choice (I'm paraphrasing). LOVE seeing the 1950s, well up when I see (an actor) Kennedy giving a speech, it's so authentic. Give it a try... :)
