Another Kennedy miniseries on the way, based on book 'After Camelot'

MONTREAL - The Montreal production company behind last year's controversial look at the Kennedy clan is returning to Camelot.

Muse Entertainment Enterprises says it has acquired the book rights to J. Randy Taraborrelli's book "After Camelot."

The plan is to co-develop a miniseries with the U.S. specialty network Reelz Channel that will trace the story of the Kennedy family from 1968 to the present.

Last year's History Television series "The Kennedys" starred Greg Kinnear as John Kennedy, Katie Holmes as Jackie Kennedy and earned Barry Pepper an Emmy for his turn as Bobby Kennedy.

Early on, the Toronto-shot drama became mired in controversy when reports suggested the Kennedy family and supporters were unhappy with it. Although the U.S. History channel had initially commissioned the project, it ended up dropping it.

The eight-hour miniseries was picked up by Reelz Channel in the U.S. and went on to garner 10 Emmy nominations.

"The Kennedys" covered the Bay of Pigs invasion, the Cuban missile crisis, the civil rights movement and the assassinations of JFK and RFK.

Muse president Michael Prupas suggested there's much more to explore.

"The Kennedy family continued to make an indelible mark on the life of America and the world after Robert Kennedy's assassination, including universal health-care and the creation of the Special Olympics," Prupas said in a release.
