History Channel Puts Kibosh On Kennedy Miniseries

PASADENA (AP) —  The History network says it has decided not to air a controversial miniseries that it has produced on the Kennedy family.

In a statement issued late Friday, the network said that “we have concluded this dramatic interpretation is not a fit for the History brand.”

The series starred Greg Kinnear and Katie Holmes as John and Jackie Kennedy. But during its production, critics like former Kennedy administration aide Theodore Sorenson attacked the scripts as innaccurate. The role of producer Joel Surnow, a political conservative, also drew suspicion from fans of the Kennedy family.

The decision was first reported Friday by the Hollywood Reporter.
