Perry, who will also serve as an exec producer on the four-part mini, joins Katie Holmes who is reprising her role as Jackie Kennedy Onassis. The project is set to debut in 2017.
The “Friends” alum will portray Ted Kennedy in the years following the assassinations of his brothers Jack and Bobby and depicts his very complicated public and private life as he tries to live up to the Kennedy family political ambition and fill a male leadership void in the family itself.
