ReelzChannel Raking In Viewers After Acquiring The Kennedys

Filed under: TV NewsPolitikKatie Holmes


This was a really good move for them, at least from this perspective.

Since ReelzChannel announced that they would be the brave souls to air the highly-controversial mini-series, The Kennedys, things have been going really well for them. Their viewership has almost doubled from earlier this year, averaging about 5.5 million viewers a week, and according to the suits, that number is bound to go up again once the mini-series actually makes it to air.

ReelzChannel CEO Stan Hubbard explained that he and his team are shooting for an audience of around 12 million people when the eight part series hits their airwaves and hopefully, that number will stick after the show is over. Stan added:

"We knew what we were getting into when we bought this. We just hope taking a risk will pay off."

So far, so good…but beware. We haven't heard from Maria Shriver in awhile. She might just be biding her time, waiting for her moment to strike and shut this thing down!

We sincerely hope she doesn't though. We have to know what the hell goes on in this movie that's got everyone in such a damn uproar!!!

Camera Shy Suri And Katie Leave Manhattan Apartment

Filed under: Katie HolmesSuri Cruise

Suri and Katie matching coats

Katie Holmes and her daughter Suri Cruise were spotted leaving their apartment Manhattan on Friday.

Suri doesn't look like she is liking all those cameras around her and we don't blame her!

The mom and daughter pair do look adorable in their dual trench coat jackets though!

Katie can next be seen in the controversial and epic 8-part mini-series The Kennedys starting April 3 on ReelzChannel.

We're pret-ty excited to FINALLY see her performance as the iconic Jackie Kennedy. What about U?

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!

Finally! The Kennedys Mini-Series Will Air!

Filed under: TV NewsFilm FlickersKatie Holmes


But you might have to pay a little extra to see it.

By now you know that everyone and their mom executive producer is a-scared of incurring the wrath of the Kennedy family, so after the History Channel dropped their Kennedys mini-series like a hot tamale, no one would touch it. Not Starz, not Showtime, not FX. No one wanted to air it, but everyone wanted to see it.

And then, like a beacon of hope, the ReelzChannel came forward and accepted the honor of pissing off America's most famous family.

What? You don't know what ReelzChannel is? Course you do! It's like MTV, but with shows about movies instead of music! Okay, maybe that wasn't the best example, but you get the idea. The point is they're putting it on the TV, which means we all have a chance to watch it and finally find out what all the fuss is about and Katie Holmes will get her chance at an Emmy that her years at Dawson's Creek never afforded her! (A travesty, if you ask us!)

According to their website, the first part of the eight part series will air on April 3rd, so set your DVRS.

Oh, and check that you've actually go the station because we're led to believe that it might one of those "special" channels you need to pay more to have. Not sure, you'll have to check!

Who's excited to see this finally?!

DirecTV Considering Airing The Kennedys

Filed under: TV NewsFilm FlickersKatie Holmes


There's still hope for The Kennedys miniseries!

After The History Channel decided to not air the 8-part miniseries and Showtime rejected it, sources say that DirecTV is in talks to possibly pick up the project, starring Katie Holmes and Greg Kinnear, and air it on its Channel 101.

This wouldn't be a first for DirecTV. They also saved NBC's Friday Night Lights and FX's Damages after they were on the brink of cancelation.

The company is not part of a major studio, such as Disney or NBC - which owns The History Channel - so this could be a very good sign for The Kennedys.

After all the recent publicity of the movie, we bet it'll get pretty good ratings no matter where it's shown.

Will U watch??
