The Gift‘s and Greg Kinnear will soon be reuniting for an entirely different project. It’s just been announced that the former costars will be headlining an upcoming miniseries about The Kennedys.

History Channel’s eight-hour event, which is reportedly “being annotated and vetted by History’s resident historians,” will focus on the personal relationships within the famous family.

The television project is not to be confused with , the big screen biopic Darren Aronofsky has planned about the hours after JFK’s assassination. (British-born Rachel Weisz is scheduled to play the First Lady in that film.)
