Unless J.J. Abrams is actually 15 different, diligent movie and TV producers, the fears that he’s spreading himself a little thin these days seem to be more and more grounded in reality. Beyond the upcoming Star Trek and Star Wars, he’s got a gaggle of TV shows he’s producing, which may have grown by one over the weekend, as he’s looking at Stephen King’s time-traveling saga 11/22/63 to adapt into a mini-series or TV show.

The premise of a school teacher traveling back to the 1960′s to stop theĀ assassinationĀ of JFK seems to be right up Abrams’ alley with both the time traveling and the elements of 1960′s culture.

This announcement should keep Abrams’ attention until next week, when he will get behind a gritty reboot of Mario Bros. or something.

Stephen King is having a great week. First, Harry Potter director David Yates signed on to adapt The Stand into a cash-raking series of epic films. Now, Jonathan Demme has announced his plans to produce, write, and direct King’s latest goofy idea. 11/22/63 tells the story of Jake Epping, a teacher whose friend reveals that there is a portal to 1958 in the back of his diner. Of course, Epping sees this as an opportunity to travel back in time and help Chuck Berry develop that new sound he’s been looking for stop the assassination of John F. Kennedy. And thus, end the career of Oliver Stone before it ever had the chance to begin. (Variety)
