Katie's Kennedy drama gets new home


Katie Holmes' portrayal of Jackie Kennedy will now be seen on US TV

Katie Holmes’ mini series The Kennedys has finally found a home on cable channel ReelzChannel in the US.

The network announced that the multi million-dollar production – about America’s famous political family – will begin its run on April 3.

The ambitious eight-part mini series, a portrait of the Kennedys told in a multi-generational manner, was produced by the History Channel, but was then abruptly yanked from the upcoming line-up last month.

At the time the network said the project, which stars Katie and Greg Kinnear as Jackie and John Kennedy, did not fit the “History brand”.

The real-life Kennedy family and associates were also said to be unhappy about the series, claiming its scripts were inaccurate and overly critical.
