Overview

Oringinally produced for History but nixed by that cable network as "not a fit" for its brand, this 8-part historical drama eventually aired on the ReelzChannel and garnered seven Emmy nominations, winning four. Inspired by one of the world’s most iconic families, the miniseries ventures upstairs at The White House to chronicle the saga of America’s first "royal" family: The Kennedys. Through exhaustive research, the series provides an intimate look at how Joseph Kennedy, Sr. (Tom Wilkinson) shaped his sons John (Greg Kinnear) and Robert (Emmy winner Barry Pepper) to become two of the most influential men in America’s history. With political events such as the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Bay of Pigs incident, and the civil rights movement playing background to the personal stories of the relationships between brother and brother and father and son, The Kennedys details how the two men handled their father, whose ambition exceeded their own, and ultimately made them who they were. The production recounts the scandals, tragedies, public greatness and private frailty of our nation’s most fabled political family during one of the most momentous decades in history.
