The Kennedys | Barry Pepper | Greg Kinnear | Katie Holmes | Tom Wilkinson | Movie Trailer | Review

Reelz Channel just announced Tuesday (Feb. 1) that it had secured the rights to “The Kennedys,” the miniseries detailing the tumultuous years of John F. Kennedy’s presidency. Now that the saga has a home, it has a trailer to go with it.

The trailer depicts a dramatic, intriguing saga of what is probably as close we get to royalty in America. We are excited about the casting of Greg Kinnear and Barry Pepper as John and Robert Kennedy, and we are intrigued by Tom Wilkinson and Katie Holmes as Joe Sr. and Jackie.

Despite an intriguing trailer, the eight-hour miniseries could have probably skipped marketing of any kind — the saga of the History Channel choosing not to air the program, followed by the cries of censorship and the subsequent search for a home has provided it with plenty of publicity and hype.

Will you be tuning in April 3 for “The Kennedys”?
