Stephen King and J.J. Abrams Team Up for Hulu Anthology ‘Castle Rock’

Series is the Second Collaboration Between the Two Following '11.23.63'

Horror novelist J.J. Abrams and producer J.J. Abrams will be collaborating for a horror anthology series on Hulu called “Castle Rock.” From Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions and Warner Bros TV, “Castle Rock” is based on a series of short stories by King. It is named after Castle Rock, the fictional area in King’s native Maine that serves as the setting for a number of his novels, novellas, and short stories.

“Castle Rock” marks the second recent collaboration for Hulu, Abrams and King: The streaming service was the home of last year’s miniseries “11.22.63,” executive-produced by Abrams and based on King’s novel.
