A name very familiar to Stephen King fans shows up in the new teaser for Hulu's Castle Rock

Hulu is using Super Bowl LII on Sunday, Feb. 4, to unveil the first television teaser for its upcoming series Castle Rock.

The drama, developed by Sam Shaw and Dustin Thomason, and which has J.J. Abrams as an executive producer, is set in the Stephen King multiverse of Castle Rock, the fictional town where many of the prolific author's stories have taken place. (The New York Comic Con trailer had previously revealed the show's Shawshank tie-in.)

Castle Rock stars André Holland, Melanie Lynskey, Sissy Spacek, Billy Skarsgård, Jane Levy and Scott Glenn. (Lost's Terry O'Quinn, who is featured in the teaser, is among the announced guest stars.)
