MUMBAI: 11.22.63, the event series thriller from executive producers J.J. Abrams, Stephen King and Bridget Carpenter will premiere in select European territories this spring exclusively on Fox.

The deal with Warner Bros. International Television Distribution secures exclusive first-run linear and non-linear rights in 18 European markets, including Bulgaria, Flemish-speaking Belgium, Croatia, Finland, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Serbia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and the U.K.

Based on King's best-selling 2011 novel, the epic new nine-hour event series 11.22.63 combines the talents of Abrams' Bad Robot Productions, best-selling author King with executive producer/writer Carpenter and Warner Bros. Television.

Academy Award winner Kevin Macdonald directs and serves as executive producer for the two-hour series premiere. Distributed around the world by Warner Bros. International Television Distribution, the series is executive produced by Abrams, King, Carpenter and Bryan Burk.

11.22.63 will roll out weekly over eight weeks on Fox channels and via associated video on-demand services.

Fox EVP for distribution Caleb Weinstein said, "The golden age of television is being driven by serialised drama. And in 2016, Fox channels across Europe are at the forefront: delivering on-demand access to the best content in the world, whenever and wherever our Pay TV subscribers want to watch."

Fox SVP global acquisitions Jason Simms added, "We are delighted to be working with Warner Bros. on 11.22.63. With its epic and suspenseful story complemented by an absolutely incredible array of talent, both behind and in front of the camera, we are confident our audiences will love what promises to be one of 2016's hottest shows, first on Fox."

Starring an ensemble cast, 11.22.63 hurtles viewers deep into the unpredictable darkness of the American Dream. Academy Award nominee James Franco 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 (Chris Cooper), 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). 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.

The cast also includes Cherry Jones, Lucy Fry, George MacKay, Leon Rippy, Kevin J. O'Connor, T.R. Knight, Jonny Coyne, Brooklyn Sudano and Tonya Pinkins, with Josh Duhamel.
