Miniseries "The Kennedys" canceled by History Channel

The much anticipated miniseries, "The Kennedys" has been pulled by the History Channel, according to a press release sent to The Hollywood Reporter. The project was able to recruit big names stars like Katie Holmes, who played Jackie Kennedy and Greg Kinnear who plays John F. Kennedy. While the movie had received some backlash for some of its harsh portrayals of the beloved family, many never thought it would come to this.
Upon completion of the production of The Kennedys, History has decided not to air the 8-part miniseries on the network,” a rep for the network tells The Hollywood Reporter in a statement. “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.

I am really saddened by the news because I was really looking forward to seeing the project. I really hope another network picks up the movie. For now, we can just watch the released trailer and wait.
