History Channel pulled the Kennedys

The Kennedys have no one left serving on Capitol Hill, but the family may still have enough clout to prevent a miniseries about the dynasty from airing in the United States. In a statement Friday, the History Channel said it had decided not to air "The Kennedys," an eight-part miniseries that stars Greg Kinnear as President John F. Kennedy, Katie Holmes as his wife, Jacqueline, and Barry Pepper as Robert F. Kennedy. While the film is produced and acted with the highest quality, after viewing the final product in its totality, we have concluded this dramatic interpretation is not a fit for the History brand," the network said in a statement. "We recognize historical fiction is an important medium for storytelling and commend all the hard work and passion that has gone into the making of the series, but ultimately deem this as the right programming decision for our network.
