Syndication Deal May Save 'The Kennedys'


Syndication Deal May Save 'The Kennedys'


The controversial miniseries is yet to find a home but producers reportedly are shopping it to a company which has no direct competition with History channel.

Producers are still trying hard to get "The Kennedys" to the eyes of public and the latest network they visited was Tribune Broadcasting. The controversial miniseries which was axed by History channel before its pilot even aired, would possibly take an unconventional route with the syndication deal.

"Kennedys", starring Greg Kinnear and Katie Holmes, is an 8-hour project which History claimed unfit for its channel. But rumor has it, the network received political pressure from the Kennedy family although producers said they have consulted historians and made some adjustments to meet both's ends.

A rep for Tribune has confirmed to Deadline that the company has been in talks for the mini but declined further comment. This decision to land it on a syndication is triggered by the fact that History still has a say on who gets the project. History may not want it to land on a rival network although some cables are also eying to pick the mini up.

"I'm not sure if History wants another (basic) cable net to air it so they might take less money to have it in syndication," a source said. The project reportedly cost a lavish $25-million in production.
