Hulu hasn’t quite yet had its “House of Cards” moment yet with its own Hulu originals.
With a handful of mild to moderate successes in original content, they are still waiting for the big one to take them to the promised land of being in the same conversation as Netflix, HBO and even the up-and-comer Amazon Prime.
However, some news this week that James Franco will be starring in a Hulu original titled 11/22/63, based on the Steven King novel of a teacher sent back in time to stop the JFK assassination from happening.
Got your attention? It certainly grabbed ours, as Franco and JJ Abrams are two pretty heavy names compared to the rest of the Hulu originals.
No date is set, but we’ll make sure to keep you updated as more news comes out.
