The Kennedys is an upcoming eight-hour Television miniseries directed by Jon Cassar and was to be shown on History Television in Canada and on History in the U.S. in 2011. In January 2011 it was announced that the mini-series would not be shown on the American History channel and that a new American broadcaster is being sought.

Full cast: Jake Beale as Joseph Kennedy Jr., Kristin Booth as Ethel Kennedy, Rachel Wilson as Michelle, Angela Besharah as Ann Gargan, Serge Houde as Sam Giancana, Chris Diamantopoulos as Frank Sinatra, Kristin Adams as Cynthia, Greg Kinnear as Jack Kennedy, Barry Pepper as Bobby Kennedy, Katie Holmes as Jackie Kennedy, Tom Wilkinson as Joe Kennedy Sr., John Boylan as Cardinal Cushi and Kevin B Hartley as Secret Service Agent.

Plot: History Channel's first scripted series tells the story of the most fabled political family in American history, told in a manner similar to The Godfather: a manipulative, egocentric father determined to live out his own ambitions through his sons, who in turn spent their lives dancing to his tune while at the same time trying to stand on their own. This is history through personality - the tangled relationships through which paint a picture of one of the most turbulent periods of the modern age. Viewers will be upstairs at the White House, not in the Cabinet Room. Through iconic events in history - the Bay of Pigs, the Cuban Missile Crisis, the civil rights struggle, the mob connection - viewers will learn about the lesser known, yet critical personal stories.
