Reelz and Canadian producer Muse Entertainment are reportedly looking into an eight-episode follow up to their controversial miniseries "The Kennedys," which starred Greg Kinnear and Katie Holmes. The series was destroyed by critics but must have done well enough for Reelz for "After Camelot" to be a possibility.
"After Camelot" would be based on a book by J. Randy Taraborrelli. The original miniseries ended with the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy, so the new series would dive into what happened to the family following the assassinations of two of their sons.
No writer has been attached to the project and the producers of the "The Kennedys," Joel Surnow and Asylum Entertainment, are not involved.
The History Channel removed the series from airing in 2011 because they found it to be too historically inaccurate.
"Upon completion of the production of 'The Kennedys,' History has decided not to air the 8-part miniseries," they said in 2011. "After viewing the final product in its totality, we have concluded that although the film is produced and acted with the highest quality auspices, the dramatic license the series takes is not suitable for the History brand."
ReelzChannel eventually picked it up, after FX, Starz and Showtime reportedly passed. It broke records for Reelz and won Barry Pepper an Emmy award for his Robert F. Kennedy.
