Earlier this week, Starz and FX both passed on picking up “The Kennedys,” the eight-part miniseries that History dropped from its schedule because it “wasn’t the right fit.” (*cough* POLITICAL PRESSURE *cough cough*)
Not to be outdone, Showtime has also passed on the series:
Showtime was considered The Kennedy‘s best shot for an airing on a traditional network in the U.S. because of 24 co-creator [Joel] Surnow’s long-standing relationship with Showtime’s new programming chief David Nevins.
Reached for comment, the CEO of History Channel said, “Anyone? Anyone? C’mon, you can have it for ten bucks. Okay, five. Did I mention it has Katie Holmes?” And all the other programming executives cleared their throats and tried not to make eye contact.
