TV Trailers: '11.22.63' With James Franco And Brett Ratner's 'Rush Hour'

As you might’ve gleaned from our 25 Most Anticipated New TV Shows Of 2016 feature, there is wealth of small-screen fare coming across the next 12 months. In fact, you could skip going to the movies altogether and still have plenty of quality programming to occupy your time. Today comes trailers for two upcoming shows — but only one of them is likely worth your attention.

First is the J.J. Abrams-produced adaptation of Stephen King‘s “11.22.63.” The limited-event series stars James Franco as a man who is sent back in time to stop the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Granted, the premise is a bit hokey; indeed, even the first moments of the trailer are a bit ridiculous. But it seems like the kind of thing that, once it settles into a groove, might be some good fun. It debuts on Hulu on February 15th.

Meanwhile, the Brett Ratner-produced “Rush Hour” series is headed to CBS, with Justin Hires and Jon Foo in the mismatched cop roles. And man, this three-minute preview looks pretty cheap and is wildly unfunny, but it’s also so dumb and broad, I would see it being a hit too. It will debut on March 31st. 

Watch both trailers below.
