The miniseries The Kennedys, originally supposed to air on The History Channel, will finally makes its way to TV. The 8-part miniseries will now premiere April 3rd on ReelzChannel. The first two parts will air on April 3rd and the rest will air one per night for the next 6 days.
The miniseries is a brain child of 24 co-creator/executive producer Joel Surnow, stars Greg Kinnear as JFK, Katie Holmes as Jackie, Barry Pepper as Bobby Kennedy, and Tom Wilkinson as Joseph Kennedy. Joel Surnow has been a vocal conservative in the past and rumor has it the Kennedy family was not comfortable with the way he depicted the family and, rumor has it, that is what lead History to axing the plans to air it for the 50th anniversary of Camelot.
Starz and Showtime also reportedly passed on the miniseries.
