The Hubbards are betting big on the Kennedys. Again.
Hubbard Broadcasting, which is based in St. Paul, has announced that its Reelz Channel is helping develop "After Camelot," a sequel to "The Kennedys," the mini-series that turned into a game changer for the cable outlet.
The gun-shy History Channel sold "The Kennedys" to the Reelz Channel, where it brought in record viewership and Emmys. The new project, which will track the family from 1968 to present day, is based on a book by J. Randy Taraborrelli.
"With 'The Kennedys' mini-series we saw tremendous response to powerful storytelling along with an intense interest in this remarkable family," said Stan E. Hubbard, CEO of Reelz.
No word yet on whether Katie Holmes will reprise her role as Jackie Kennedy.
