Kennedy projects campaign in Cannes

Dueling projects make rounds at Mipcom

There were dueling projects about the Kennedy clan on show at the Mipcom TV mart on Monday.

Europe Image Intl., the sales arm of Lagardere Entertainment, inked with Canada’s Muse Distribution Intl. to acquire European distribution rights to eight-part miniseries “The Kennedys,” tracing the family from the election of President Kennedy in 1961 to the murder of his brother Robert F. Kennedy in 1968.

Created by Joel Surnow and Stephen Kronish, the duo behind “24,” the drama stars Greg Kinnear, Katie Holmes and Barry Pepper.

Show is lensing in Canada and is set for a March delivery. “The Kennedys” will air on the History Channel in the U.S., CanwestGlobal in Canada, Telecinco in Spain and various other Euro territories.

Meanwhile, France Televisions Distribution sold docu “The Kennedys: The End of Innocence” to Discovery’s TLC in the U.S.

Produced by French shingle Program33 and directed by Patrick Jeudy, “The Kennedys” was the most-screened doc at this year’s Mipdoc. The 97-minute docu uses exclusive archive material including home movies from the Kennedy family. It will bow on TLC next year, the 50th anniversary of JFK’s inauguration.
