No One Wants To Air The Kennedys Mini-Series

Geez! What is so scandalous about this mini-series that no one wants to touch it?

You'll recall that the History Channel was all set to air the mini-series The Kennedys, starring Katie Holmes and Greg Kinnear, until the actual Kennedy family put enough pressure on them to let the project drop. Since then, the project has been desperately trying to find a US distributor, with no luck at all.

Sources report that both the Starz and FX networks passed on it just as The History Channel did, fearing the same opposition from one of America's most powerful families.

But we have a feeling someone is going scoop this up faster than they think. The longer it takes to find a buyer, the more buzz and interest the series will get. By the time it finally does find a distributor, there'll be so much hype that the ratings will be sky high.

Something to think about, Showtime! (Yeah, we remember you were interested. Perhaps its time to get interested again!)

    this must be some seriously good shiz. now i REALLY wanna see it. before not so much.

    I guess there were skeletons in the closet the Kennedys don't want to expose. All this controversy will just peak people's interest to wanna watch it.

    Wow! This looks really good. I can see why no body wants to pick it up. They'd be steppin' on powerful people's toes perhaps? Looks very interesting. Hopefully a brave one will pick it up and syndicate it. Kennedy was great!!!

    It's hard to imagine anything scandalous that hasn't already been covered. Maybe it's just not a good mini-series. Greg Kinnear is usually good, but Katie Holmes as Jackie? Please!

    The HC is worried about authenticity and accuracy?
    This is just crazy talk.

    This from the channel that faithfully airs 'Armageddon Week' every year.
    -
    They actually have a show called ANCIENT ALIENS?!
    -
    Come on, HC.
    If you don't want to air it, fine. But don't insult our intelligence. That's what Armageddon Week is for.

    Tommyboy must be furious…there must be SOMETHING his wife can do.

    If you are going to do a film about an actual family, you might want it to have some resemblance to the truth. This film was so far removed from reality, it was a joke.

    Interesting that they still have so much power, but I guess since there are still so many of them. The children of Robert & Ethel alone are a small soccer team. Not enjoying the new "read the rest of the story," crap. It only means I won't be clicking on the story now.

    Re: luvs2tango – My hunch, just a whacky theory, is that someone might be threatening to sue. Money talks.

    Katie as Jackie killed it. I'd have watched it had they gotten a decent actress. I hope nobody picks it up. It's going to tank.

    It's probably because (there is a rumor going around) that Vicki Kennedy Ted's wife is going to run for his seat…….so they don't want to mess/bring anything up that's a no no!!!

    The Kennedy's couldn't keep their private lives in order. I am so sick of the Kennedy's trying to strong arm the public! If they didn't go around cheating, boozing and driving drunk and killing an innocent girl, people wouldn't find them nearly as interesting. Everything in their lives was so calculated, and orchestrated by their father, that these kids went crazy under the pressure to be what he demanded of them. Especially when Joseph Kennedy Jr.died and all the plan turned to John.

    wow thats unfortunate…katie put a lot of work into this, im sure!

    Oh, fuck the Kennedys. They had no problem fucking everybody and everything else (except when John's & Bobby's dicks "allegedly" were infested with "items." Turn about is fair whore play.
