Kennedys May Come to DirecTV After Showtime, History Say No: Report
After Showtime turned down The Kennedys, the eight-part miniseries starring Katie Holmes and Greg Kinnear that the History Channel pulled, many thought it was the end of the much-discussed miniseries. But TVLine exclusively reports that DirecTV is in talks to air The Kennedys. The History Channel reportedly decided that the "dramatic interpretation" of the script was not a good fit for the channel. The real Kennedys were also pressuring the A&E network to ensure that the script for the movie was accurate, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
