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.

Throughout the mini-series, Robert, while serving as Attorney General, is addressed verbally as "General". Although Attorneys General are addressed as General, this is done only when they appear or are referred to in either a U.S. Federal Court or the U.S. Supreme Court. Outside of these courts, protocol dictates that the AG is addressed as either "Attorney General" or "Mr. Attorney General". See more »
Loved it!! You covered all the highlights - many we have only read about and not seen before. Details on political manoeuvring to get elected and to stay in office. Details on Hoover, Mafia, Mafia girlfriends, Cuba, segregation, Catholics, father issues. Well done by all actors! Katie Holmes nailed Jackie. Quiet,soft-spoken,intelligent, living in a difficult situation. Making the best of the times she was in. Very believable Sets were good. You covered all the controversial topics. In site into daughter Rosemary' limitations. Jack's many one night stands, and medical issues, drug dependencies. Too bad History Channel U.S. was pressured into not airing it.
