Picking up where the Emmy®-winning miniseries “The Kennedys” left off, the 4-part drama “The Kennedys – After Camelot,” provides a fascinating look into the modern era of America’s royal family. The sequel picks up with the 1968 assassination of Bobby Kennedy through Jackie Kennedy’s eventual success to reinvent herself.
Based on the best-selling book of the same name by J. Randy Taraborrelli, “The Kennedys – After Camelot” stars Katie Holmes as Jackie Kennedy-Onassis, Matthew Perry as Sen. Ted Kennedy, Alexander Siddig as Aristotle Onassis and newcomer Brett Donahue as the beloved John F. Kennedy, Jr. Diana Hardcastle stars as Rose Kennedy, Kristin Booth as Ethel Kennedy and Kristen Hager as Joan Kennedy.
In covering much of Jackie’s life, many additional family tragedies occur along the way. Author Taraborrelli brings a well researched perspective to both the negative and positive occurrences along the way, and also serves as an executive producer on the series.
