Stephen King’s 11/22/63 is Heading to TV

Last December, the screen rights to Stephen King’s novel 11/22/63 slipped out of Jonathan Demme’s hands.  The Silence of the Lambs helmer was grooming the tale for the big screen but, as of last year, the project was “off of the table,” as he put it.

But now, a new party is circling the adaptation: J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot.  Deadline says that the company is currently in talks with Warner Bros. to have the story unfold on television as a series rather than a feature  film.
