Former “Law & Order” star Jill Hennessy will play Jacqueline Kennedy in NBC’s upcoming mini “Jackie, Ethel, Joan: Women of Camelot.”
Peacock has cast Lauren Holly (“Picket Fences”) as Ethel Kennedy and Leslie Stefanson (“The General’s Daughter”) as Joan Kennedy. Four-hour mini will air Nov. 5 and 6, just before the presidential election.
CBS is airing part one of its own Camelot miniseries (“Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis: A Life”) opposite the bow of NBC’s mini on Sunday, Nov. 5 (Daily Variety, June 1.)
“Women of Camelot” is based on J. Randy Taraborelli’s tome of the same name.
