    Katie Holmes's Kennedys Finds a Home on ReelzChannel

    By Dahvi Shira
    Tuesday February 01, 2011 06:30 PM EST


    After being rejected by the History Channel and other networks, The Kennedys starring Katie Holmes and Greg Kinnear has been picked up by ReelzChannel.

    "We think it will drive ratings and put a spotlight on this network that has never been on it before," CEO Stan E. Hubbard tells The Hollywood Reporter. "We're going to do a full-blown marketing campaign."

    The eight-part controversial miniseries, costing $30 million to produce, will premiere April 3.

    The Kennedys was axed from the History Channel based on its depiction of the political family. A rep for A&E Television Networks had said, "After viewing the final product in its totality, we have concluded this dramatic interpretation is not a fit for the History brand."

    ReelzChannel is a digital cable network that has been around since 2006 and airs original programming about movies, as well as reruns of Ally McBeal, Brothers and Sisters and Cheers.

    I know. All that blinking and lack of expression and the trailer is supposed to show the best bits.

    Political dynasties need to get over themselves - especially the Kennedys. They should stay quiet & stop drawing attention to themselves. They should take a cue from Jacqueline - don't try to censor the media & use a little class.

    411mania.com: Movies - [TV] Katie Holmes and The Kennedys Mini-Series Getting Bad Reviews

    [TV] Katie Holmes and The Kennedys Mini-Series Getting Bad Reviews
    Posted by Chad Webb on 03.30.2011
    The mini-series is not a hit with critics...
    The controversial mini-series The Kennedys will premiere on Reelz Channel this weekend, and the early word from critics is not positive for Katie Holmes.

    She is getting bad reviews for her performance as Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy. The Hollywood Reporter said the mini-series was "dull" and "unwatchable." He wrote: "You think, 'That's Katie Holmes.' Or, 'That's Katie Holmes having the damndest time with Jackie's accent.' You are never transported somewhere else by the character because the real-life subjects are so distinctive in your mind."

    Her accent was mentioned by other critics as well. On CBS' Early Show, it was said that Katie "doesn't really have the gravitas to pull off the role…And the accent, it's a little silly - for eight hours, it's a long time to be, you know, watching her play this character in the way that she does."

    Variety said that Katie "looked the part," but conceeded that "that's about all" she brought to the movie.
