The most famous family in American history comes to life in this epic 8-part miniseries event

September 19, 2011 – From the producers of the megahit series 24, this six-hour scripted drama/miniseries ventures upstairs at the White House during the 1960s to chronicle the saga of America’s first “royal” family. THE KENNEDYS provides an intimate look at how Joseph Kennedy, Sr. shaped his sons John and Robert to become two of the most influential men in U.S. history. The 8-part miniseries details how the two sons managed their father, whose ambition exceeded their own, and ultimately made them who they were. THE KENNEDYS recounts the scandal, tragedy, public greatness and private frailty of our nation’s most fabled political family during one of the most momentous decades in history.

THE KENNEDYS premiered on Reelz Channel and features an all-star cast including: Oscar®-nominee Greg Kinnear (As Good As It Gets) as JFK; Katie Holmes (Batman Begins) as Jackie Kennedy; Emmy®-winnerBarry Pepper (Saving Private Ryan) as RFK and Emmy®-winner Tom Wilkinson (John Adams)as Joseph Kennedy Sr.

With political events such as World War II, the Cuban Missile Crisis, and the civil rights movement playing background to their personal stories, THE KENNEDYS dramatizes the family’s triumphs and tragedies while revisiting the historical period that played a significant role in American politics.

“The miniseries…is without a doubt one of the best, most riveting, historically accurate dramas about a time and place in American history that has ever been done for TV.”  — NY Post
