The Kennedys: After Camelot (mini-series) - Universal's 2-DVD Set Starring Katie Holmes, Matthew Perry

Alexander Siddig co-stars in this upcoming 4-part mini-series

Posted by David Lambert
    A ground-breaking miniseries, The Kennedys: After Camelot is an engrossing look at those who carried the Kennedy name - and the expectations of history - following the assassinations of President John F. Kennedy and Robert F. Kennedy.

    Katie Holmes stars as Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis. Still reeling from the death of her husband, John F. ("Jack") Kennedy, the nation's 35th president, and all but crushed by the assassination of her beloved brother-in-law Robert F. ("Bobby") Kennedy, her marriage to Greek billionaire Aristotle Onassis provides safety and security for her and her children. It also outrages the American people.

    But hers is the story of survival, and she returns to the Kennedys to become the rock of the family. Matthew Perry portrays Senator Edward M. "Ted" Kennedy. Challenged to pick up the mantle of his fallen brothers, he spirals downward into the abyss of alcoholism and infidelity. His relationship with Jackie, stormy and emotionally-charged, becomes the salvation of his life and, in many ways, the validation of hers.

    They were America's royals, blessed with great gifts and burdened with great flaws. The Kennedys: After Camelot peels back the veneer of power, fame and wealth, and shows them as they really were...all-too-human, after all.
In 2011, Katie Holmes co-starred as "Jacqueline Kennedy" in the mini-series event, The Kennedys. Now, in 23 days, she returns to the role in the ReelzChannel cable network follow-up 4-part mini-series: The Kennedys: After Camelot.

Matthew Perry (Friends, The Odd Couple, The Whole Nine Yards) joins Holmes' "Jackie" in the starring role of "Ted Kennedy," and Alexander Siddig (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Game of Thrones) co-stars as the man who puts the "O" in "Jackie O": Aristotle Onassis. It's based on a 2012 book by J. Randy Taraborrelli, "After Camelot: A Personal History of the Kennedy Family 1968 to the Present."

Now, even before this mini-series airs, Universal Studios Home Entertainment is announcing The Kennedys: After Camelot for DVD release! The 2-disc set will be hitting stores on May 16th. It's priced at just $29.98 SRP, and includes English SDH subtitles. Bonus material, if any, hasn't been revealed as of this writing. And package art isn't finalized yet, but stay tuned and we'll bring that to you once it's available!
