The Kennedys – After Camelot, is based on the book After Camelot: A Personal History of the Kennedy Family 1968 to the Present, by J Randy Taraborrelli.

It will be produced by Muse Entertainment, which was behind a previous miniseries called The Kennedys, which was picked up by ReelzChannel after several networks passed over it due to bad publicity surrounding the project.

Katie Holmes will reprise her role as Jackie Kennedy in the new miniseries, as well as directing one episode and executive producing. Jon Cassar will helm the other three parts after directing all eight episodes of The Kennedys.

Production is due to begin in the spring and will debut on Reelz, and Corus Entertainment in Canada, in 2016.

Muse Entertainment will handle international distribution.
