UK viewers will be able to watch the TV adaptation of Stephen King's novel '11.22.63' on Fox.

The series will last nine hours in all, and will be broadcast this spring.

It stars James Franco as Jake Epping, a high school teacher who travels back in time to try and stop Lee Harvey Oswald from assassinating US president John F Kennedy.

He also falls in love with a librarian named Sadie, and faces an internal struggle about whether to change the past or not. So it might have a touch of the 'Goodnight Sweetheart' about it.

It also stars Chris Cooper, Cherry Jones, Lucy Fry and George MacKay.

Fox executive Jason Simms said in a statement: "We are delighted to be working with Warner Bros. on '11.22.63.'

"With its epic and suspenseful story both 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."

In the US, the series is exclusive to streaming service Hulu.
