02.01.11 by REELZ
The highly anticipated and controversial drama series The Kennedys has found a new home — right here on the ReelzChannel TV network, we're happy to announce. The epic eight-part movie event will have its world premiere April 3.
"We're not beholden to anyone — we are here for the viewers and we are here for the movie and artistic community as well," says ReelzChannel CEO Stan E. Hubbard. "As a true independent, we have the freedom that few networks enjoy."
The Kennedys — which stars Greg Kinnear as JFK, Katie Holmes as Jackie, Barry Pepper as Bobby, and Tom Wilkinson as Joe Kennedy Sr. — tells the story of the most fabled political family in American history:
The drama relives the public and private joys and tragedies of the most influential family in the world including fraternal rivalries, mob associations, the drugs and the women. The series re-creates the political crisis that John F. Kennedy dealt with in the early days of his presidency including the Bay of Pigs invasion, the Cuban Missile Crisis that brought the world to the brink of nuclear war, and the Civil Rights Movement. Viewers will see every twist and turn of this dynamic family's extraordinary story up to and including the assassinations of JFK and RFK.
