ReelzChannel Re-Releases Trailer For The Kennedys!

| Filed under: TV NewsFilm FlickersKatie Holmes

It will finally see the light of day!

Now that ReelzChannel has officially picked up the eight-part miniseries The Kennedys - after the famous family essentially blacklisted it - the network has released their OWN version of the trailer…or pretty much the one we've already seen, but now with their logo and an airdate included in the footage!

Ch-ch-check it out (above)!

Meanwhile, in spite of the controversy, the film's executive producer, Michael Prupas, is adamant that the series in historically accurate, and explains:

"It's the truth. The goal of the script from the very beginning was to tell the family story of the Kennedys. There's much written evidence of what went on in that family. They truly were a great family that has a Shakespearian story arc that resulted in many tragedies and many great successes. It is a positive reflection – but we have shown the flaws. It is blatantly obvious from many public sources that the family had certain flaws and certain problems. We weren't inventing the wheel."

And Reelz's CEO, Stan E. Hubbard, agrees:

"We don’t enjoy controversy or want to pick a fight, but the history is the history. When you watch this, there are incredible successes and unbelievable tragedies. The family stays together and they're loyal to each other and to the country throughout the highest highs and the lowest lows. The cast put their heart and soul into this, and with great care to accuracy of circumstances and visuals. We're so thrilled and proud of being able to step up and help this story be told that they so carefully created."

Well, we suppose only time will tell, but yeah…the trailer doesn't really help their argument!

Thoughts??

    this actually looks likes it's going to be very good. i watched a docu on TLC about the kennedy's and just that brought tears to my eyes. "stick with family" is the motto of the kennedy family. truly amazing people. i have to say even through all the scandal and death. the kennedy's are very much a part of american history. and their story is an amazing one.

    I was mesmerized! Now I'm actually thinking they could actually be suppressing this movie because they are scared. Now here is what I will confess right now..WHAT IS THE TRUTH? If all those "insider" books people like me read about the Kennedys were in fact LIES than maybe it ISN'T truth but I'll tell you what…it is a DAMNED GOOD STORY! I mean was "Gone With the Wind" a true story? Did that hurt its greatness? If I had to bet though, I would indeed bet that the Kennedy story (as portrayed in the recent Katie Holmes movie) is in fact true. It just really makes a lot of sense. And then it only follows that the kids like Caroline Kennedy would try to suppress it too in supposed wishes of her Mom and Dad. GREAT JOB KATIE HOLMES and I don't mind that Kinnear's Boston accent isn't perfect either…but then I'm not from Boston…

    As a non America, (im english) i dont really see the big deal about airing this at all.

    I mean the movie studios rewrite history for entertainment all the time, titanic, saving private ryan, malcom x, JFK, and pearl harbour being classic examples.

    I for one will be looking forward to watching it, i adore katie holmes and look forward to seeing her take on jackie and greg kinnear is a great actor and im sure his performance is superb.
    The problem with Americans in General is that they take offence over the most ridiculous things and are too afraid of upsetting the rich people and yet do the same things themselves, they made a movie about the 2nd world war and pretended that they won it and left the english out altogether. Rewriting history much ???
    No offence as i love you guys and ur tv shows but get over yourselves and just watch it before you decide..

    News flash Caroline,your family is a bunch of sleazy scum buckets.Your Daddy couldn,t his pecker in his pants,your grandpapa was a famous skirt chaser and bootlegger ,uncle Teds a murderer,so stop pretending that your your familys shit don,t stink.I be really concerned that one or two inviduals in the Kennedy clan have that much power in media circles to not air a this program.Pretty scarey,sounds like mcarthyism is alive and well in the US again

    Looks great to me. Thank you, Reelz for growing a pair when other networks were still waiting for theirs to drop.

    The trailer made it look like Jackie could not be bought by Joe Sr. That itself is an inaccuracy because it's known that she DID take money. She was going to leave and Joe gave her millions to stay with JFK.

    You never really know how it was unless you were there. They can only represent the who, what, where, when and why as the facts present after some cross checking; but as to the responses of the people in the inner circle?
    All conjecture.

    lol Reelz.

    There's probably more people listed in the credits for the movie than there are people with access to Reelz.

    I live in Canada and will enjoy a fine documentary about the Kennedy's. Really wonder why the "Clan" didn't want that being shown in the states. Well I'll let you know what the big secret is
