Los Angeles, Feb 2 (THAINDIAN NEWS) After being denied access on the History Channel for not being “fit” for the network, the miniseries The Kennedys has found a network to air on.

ReelzChannel has agreed to air the eight-part miniseries from the 3rd day of April. It will be the first time that viewers will be given the chance to see the miniseries which has Greg Kinnear as former American President John F. Kennedy and Katie Holmes and his wife, Jackie Kennedy.

The Hollywood Reporter claimed in its report that ReelzChannel is motivated to air the show because viewers need to see it.

The report quoted the CEO, Stan Hubbard, saying “One of the benefits of being an independent network is that you can be an independent voice and you don’t have to worry about corporate pressure or political pressure - this is a project that deserves to be seen.”

History Channel refused to air the miniseries after reviewing the final product presented. The channel admitted that the content was excellent and it could possibly serve as a way of telling historical facts. That got many people to speculate that the reason had more to it than the network cited.
