“The Kennedys,” which stars Katie Holmes as Jackie O, just got an official second chance at life: the miniseries will premiere April 3 on ReelzChannel.
You may recall the multi-million dollars series was pulled from the History Channel after Caroline Schlossberg and Maria Shriver campaigned against it.
But apparently they don’t have any pull over Reelz.
We know what you’re doing right now: scratching your head, reaching for your remote and wondering what the heck ReelzChannel is. Us, too.
It turns out ReelzChannel is sort of like a TV Guide channel for movies — it runs trailers, movie reviews and celebrity clip compilations alongside reruns of “Ally McBeal” and “Becker.”
It’s owned by Hubbard Broadcasting, a Minneapolis-based company that owns local broadcast TV stations around the country.
So Hubbard likely has less troublesome connections than A&E, which dropped the miniseries after a complicated behind-doors saga involving Caroline Kennedy, Maria Shriver, Hyperion Publishing and Disney.
And the company is clearly thrilled to have gotten ahold of “The Kennedys” — it’s already teasing the premiere with onscreen promos.
Will you be watching — and helping to put ReelzChannel on the map? Check out the trailer below to decide.
