That is the behind the new miniseries 11.22.63, based on the best-selling book by Stephen King.

James Franco plays a history teacher who goes back in time to stop Lee Harvey Oswald from killing John F. Kennedy.

At the show's Los Angeles premier, Franco called the series “a fresh take on the assassination. It's like 'What if? What if you could change history?'”

The series was filmed at the Dallas Book Depository where Oswald opened fire on the Kennedy motorcade. They also got permission to film in Dealey Plaza and on the infamous grassy knoll.

INSIDE EDITION asked Franco if he could go back in time and change one historical day, which would it be.

“If I would change anything, you'd think stop 9/11, of course. I’d want to stop that, but who's to say something worse wouldn't happen?”
