A&E Drops Kennedys Miniseries

Posted by Shirley Brady on January 9, 2011 10:10 PM

A&E has dropped The Kennedys miniseries, starring Greg Kinnear as JFK and Katie Holmes as Jackie O — bowing to pressure from Caroline Kennedy and Maria Shriver that it was historically inaccurate, according to The Hollywood Reporter, which broke the news.

"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," A&E said in a statement. The eight-part miniseries may still air internationally.
