Press Statement by Robert Greenwald on the History Channel Pulling the Plug on Joel Surnow's "The Kennedys" Miniseries.

"After reading the original script for Joel Surnow's 'The Kennedys' miniseries, Brave New Films was concerned about historical accuracy and sent the script to respected historians for their opinions. Historians like Ted Sorensen and Thurston Clarke agreed that the script was a salacious work of fiction (stopkennedysmears.com). These experts agreed that it would be dishonest and dangerous to put out this miniseries as 'history' for a new generation unfamiliar with the great legacy of the Kennedy family. We are elated to learn that the History Channel chose to pull the plug on this project. This is a great victory for the legacy of President Kennedy and for the entire Kennedy family." Robert Greenwald, President, Brave New Films
