The eight-part miniseries The Kennedys, starring Greg Kinnear and Katie Holmes, has been passed on by another network.
Showtime has decided not to buy the miniseries that was just dropped by The History Channel last week.
An exec claims that "there has been interest expressed by several networks.” That may be true but there are no takers yet.
HBO already has an adaptation of Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy in development with Playtone, and Starz has not been approached.
Many believe that the film is slanted politically but director said that “the actual product takes no political stance one way or the other.”
Guess we'll have to wait and see!
Oh boy, oh boy! It's been too long!
Our favorite tinsy toddler fashionista, Suri Cruise, has finally come out of hiding. After a long day of shooting on the set of her new film, Jack & Jill, Katie Holmes took some time out to bond with her little one at a petting zoo nearby.
Suri got to see and pet some of the friendly animals, like the wee bitty rabbits, while apparently wearing one herself!
We kid, we kid. We're sure Mommy made sure that's a faux fur coat she is wearing. (Hopefully…)
Stylin' as always, BB! Hope she had a swell time!

New season, new face.
Ann Taylor has unveiled the first ad from their spring campaign starring a new celebrity face: Katie Holmes.
Katie, who's been a fan of the label since she was a little girl, was shot in a sleek navy suit by photographer Tom Munro.
She looks great, especially that hair!

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?
