WHY MARIA SHRIVER AND CAROLINE KENNEDY DON’T WANT YOU TO SEE “THE KENNEDYS”
It’s funny how Maria Shriver and Caroline Kennedy combined their impressive political power to pressure the History channel into canceling the 25 million dollar miniseries about the Kennedy family. The eight hour miniseries covering 40 years, “The Kennedys,” will be seen in Canada and all over the world- just not the United States (until another network chooses to ignore the political pressure and pick it up.) What irks Maria and Caroline is the fact that the writer and producer Joel Surnow, happens to be a Republican and an admirer of Ronald Reagan. And the cousins didn’t like the fact that although the story was factual, it was necessary to create dialog to move the story along. The show’s stars Katie Holmes and Greg Kinnear support the project as a “very positive representation of the Kennedys” and are very disappointed.
