Despite spending millions to produce a miniseries about the Kennedy family, the History Channel has decided not to air the series.  Apparently it was a dramatic rather than historical series.

The multi-million dollar miniseries, which stars Greg Kinnear and Katie Holmes as John and Jackie Kennedy, was History's most expensive project ever. But the network issued a statement late Friday saying that after watching the finished product, "we have concluded this dramatic interpretation is not a fit for the History brand."

A former aide to President Kennedy said scenes in the series were inaccurately portrayed.  And another filmmaker had fifty-thousand signatures on a petition urging the History Channel to squash the project.  Producers can still sell the program to another channel and are in talks with Showtime.   Get more details here.
