Kennedy Miniseries Rejected Again

posted by Nell Minow

KennedysPoster_300.jpgAs the commemoration of the 50th anniversary of President Kennedy’s inauguration is celebrated in Washington this week, there are headlines in the entertainment news about a miniseries about the Kennedy family that has been pulled from the broadcast schedule. Greg Kinnear and Katie Holmes play the President and First Lady. The History Channel announced that it would be showing the miniseries in December of 2009, but after working with the producers to try to ensure its accuracy were still unable to conclude that it fit with their other programming. Now, according to the New York Times, it has also been turned down by Starz, FX, and Showtime.
It is scheduled for broadcast in 30 other countries.
What do you think? Would you watch it?

    Thanks for sharing! History about the Kennedys has always been interesting. There is so much history behind their name, but unfortunately sadness also follow them.

    So let me get this straight. Germany, France, the UK and who know what other foreigners can view a film of alledgedly dubious accuracy, but Americans aren’t trusted to make their own judgements? Does this strike anyone else as a little crazy? What is the real story about why this was pulled. If accuracy was the true criterion, I can think of multiple examples on some of the named networks (Starz for goodness sake?) that should never have been aired.
