Katie Holmes' Kennedy Miniseries Gets Slammed


Katie Holmes


Experts and former employees of the Kennedy family are fuming after seeing early versions of the screenplay, insisting many key scenes are fictional.

A new TV miniseries about America's famous Kennedy family starring Katie Holmes has been blasted by a former presidential aid, who alleges the script is based on events which "never happened". The actress will play Jackie Kennedy, the wife of assassinated U.S. President John F. Kennedy, in the upcoming drama show which will debut on America's History Channel next year.

But experts and former employees of the Kennedy family are fuming after seeing early versions of the screenplay, insisting many key scenes are fictional. Ted Sorensen, who was John F. Kennedy's special counsel and speechwriter in the White House, says, "Every single conversation with the president in the Oval Office or elsewhere in which I, according to the script, participated, never happened."

Nigel Hamilton, author of JFK: Reckless Youth, adds: "Frankly, it's a travesty. Why feed this kind of garbage on something called the History Channel?" Greg Kinnear will play JFK in the project.

    You know what - who cares if the conversatiosn took place or not, the Kennedy Clan are not off limits for some artistic lisence and the series is well acted. JFK was not the Holy Grail, he was a man like any other. Get a life.
