Red carpet with Reelz

'Kennedys' family basks in new home

After a long, public trek to find a home, the cast and crew of “The Kennedys” miniseries were happy to be walking the Reelz Channel red carpet for the premiere Monday night at the Academy.

“When I first found out they (History) dropped it, I thought it was some genius publicity stunt on our part,” said cast member Charlotte Sullivan.

“I don’t know what we were all going to do (if the series didn’t find a network),” said Greg Kinnear, who plays JFK. “Probably eat nachos and have some sort of non-viewing party at my house.”

Reelz CEO Stan Hubbard said the cabler, which picked up the series after History declined, didn’t have some of the restrictions of other networks. “We didn’t have to worry about a big corporate board or a bunch of shareholders,” he said and quipped, “Our hope is that people can find Reelz channel.” – — Lauren Zima
