T.R. Knight Joins Hulu ‘11/22/63’ Event Series from J.J. Abrams

T.R. Knight has joined the cast of the Hulu original event series “11/22/63,” from J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Prods., based on the best-selling 2011 JFK-assassination time-travel novel by Stephen King.

Knight (“The Good Wife,” “Grey’s Anatomy”) will portray Johnny Clayton, a 1960s Texas salesman who can’t quite break up with his estranged wife Sadie Dunhill (Sarah Gadon), even as she falls in love with Jake Epping (James Franco). Charismatic but controlling, Clayton confronts Jake in a tense encounter that puts Jake’s double life at risk. But there’s equal danger in what will happen if Jake and Sadie expose Johnny’s own secrets.

11/22/63” centers on Epping (Franco), an unassuming divorced English teacher who embarks on a quest to prevent the assassination of President Kennedy but finds his mission threatened by love; the infamous Lee Harvey Oswald; and the past itself, which does not want to be changed.

The nine-episode special event series, from Warner Bros. Television, is exec produced and written by Bridget Carpenter. Hulu has not announced a premiere date for “11/22/63” except to say it’s expected to up some time in early 2016. The series will be available only to subscribers of the $7.99-per-month service — as Hulu looks to compete more aggressively with Netflix and Amazon Prime Instant Video in the SVOD space.

Knight is repped by the Gersh Agency and managed by Thruline Entertainment.
