The Kennedys Overview

The story of the most fabled political family in American history, told in a manner similar to The Godfather: a manipulative, egocentric father determined to live out his own ambitions through his sons, who in turn spent their lives dancing to his tune while at the same time trying to stand on their own. This is history through personality—the tangled relationships through which paint a picture of one of the most turbulent periods of the modern age. Viewers will be upstairs at the White House, not in the Cabinet Room. Through iconic events in history—the Bay of Pigs, the Cuban Missile Crisis, the civil rights struggle, the mob connection—viewers will learn about the lesser known, yet critical personal stories.
