This may shed some light on why The Kennedys are attempting to keep this from airing in the United State!
Check out the trailer for the eight-part miniseries, The Kennedys, originally set to play on The History Channel and starring Greg Kinnear, Katie Holmes, and Tom Wilkinson (above)!
Pretty scandalous for a trailer! We definitely think that a lot of people are going to want to watch this one!
Fingers crossed that it gets released here!
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!)
A&E Television Network has pulled the plug on their new miniseries, The Kennedys, claiming the series was "not a fit" for The History Channel.
The miniseries, which stars Greg Kinnear and Katie Holmes as JFK and Jackie O., was the most expensive program ever for the network and was highly-anticipated. However, it was also embroiled in controversy after it was considered inaccurate by Kennedy historians.
A rep for the network said:
"Upon completion of the production of The Kennedys, History has decided not to air the 8-part miniseries on the network. While the film is produced and acted with the highest quality, after viewing the final product in its totality, we have concluded this dramatic interpretation is not a fit for the History brand.
We recognize historical fiction is an important medium for storytelling and commend all the hard work and passion that has gone into the making of the series, but ultimately deem this as the right programming decision for our network."
The project may not be dead yet as other cable networks, such as Showtime, may still pick up the miniseries.
Do U think this was the right move from The History Channel?? Or bad idea?
Katie Holmes is looking fabulous on the February 2011 cover of ELLE magazine.
And we’re loving the last shot as Katie owns it with the over-the-shoulder look.
As for the interview, check out some of the HIGHlights below:
On Suri’s shopping style: “The other day we came out of a store, and she said, ‘I want to go there,’ pointing at another store quite a distance away. In that store was the dress that she wanted. I said, ‘Wow, Suri. You’re something. You picked that out from a football field away.’”
On getting fashion advice from Suri: “She’ll really tell me [what she thinks]. Like today I’m wearing brown suede pants, and she said, ‘I don’t like your pants.’ But then she’ll say, ‘You’ve got to wear these shoes.’ Or ‘That’s so pretty, Mom. Wear that.’ She’s got a great eye.”
On not letting the attention from the paparazzi get to her: “I don’t worry so much. It is what it is, and it’s fine. I’ll go somewhere because I need to get something done.”
On decorating: “I like to create a nice table. I love roses and orchids and French tulips and berries, and then a lot of things that are just pretty and I have no idea what their names are.”
What do U think of Katie's look?
Wonder if she actually got a ticket!
Katie Holmes looked pissed when she was pulled over by police during a shopping trip in Beverly Hills on Thursday.

Such a happy family!
Tom and Katie out to dinner with their daughter Suri at Il Cantinori in NYC on Sunday.
We're thinking Tom could definitely use a calm night like this after doing all those intense stunts for Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol.
We hope you had a wonderful night out, bbs.

Nice kicks, girl! The envy of the whole place, we bet!
Katie Holmes was spotted hitting the gym in New York the morning after her birthday this weekend. Perhaps she felt the need to work off some of the goodies she had the night before!
Give and take - that's what a good regiment is all about! Seems to be working for her too!
But what, no gym time for Suri? No Mommy and Me yoga program? What kind of gym is this?
