The Kennedys Miniseries to Air After All

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Drama, Mini Series, Specials, Cable, Gossip, Video,

 


… but, the History Channel still isn’t going to touch it.

The much-talked-about Kennedys miniseries, which was created by the History Channel and (allegedly) pulled off TV by the Kennedy family, will make it to US households after all. Mmm … some of them, anyway.

No major networks were bold enough to accept the series, but the cable ReelzChannel will begin showing The Kennedys starting on April 3rd.

If you’ve never heard of that channel, you aren’t alone. The website has a helpful locator so you can find out how to get it ... and then, you’ll finally have the chance to see Katie Holmes as Jackie Kennedy. Honestly, it’s hard to hold a grudge against the Kennedy clan for trying to put a stop to that.

Kennedy Miniseries—Featuring Katie Holmes—Already Canceled


It appears the actual Kennedys are the ones to thank played a role in the cancellation of The Kennedys – a miniseries once destined for the History Channel.

The eight-hour event, featuring Greg Kinnear as President John F. Kennedy, was to have focused on focus on the personal relationships within the famous family. And though Katie Holmes “worked as hard” as she could to portray former First Lady Jackie Kennedy, the project was scrapped from the channel’s schedule.

Brad Meltzer: Decoded

Brad MeltzerRemember when The History Channel was just D-Day Invasions, tank battles and old guys talking about shooting Nazis?

That changed with shows like American Pickers and Pawn Stars.

And it’s going to be a little different tonight (December 2; check local listings). Author and comic book writer Brad Meltzer (DC Comics’ Identity Crisis & Dark Horse’s Buffy The Vampire Slayer) is the host of a new reality TV series called Decoded, about solving some of history's mysteries.

Of course, this is the modern era so it won’t be a bunch of gray-haired white people sitting in leather-bound conservatories holding court and being intercut with archival footage of beachheads and bombing runs.

Nope. Meltzer and his gang of historians have made it a race.
