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.Written by

When "Dr. Feelgood" is injecting Jackie Kennedy the camera shows him withdrawing the needle. As the needle exits her skin, you can see it is a flat spring loaded "Special effects" needle and not a real hypodermic needle. See more »
There are so many things I can say about this mini-series. I just finished the first episode and I know the rest of the series is going to be grade-a fantastic. The writing is perfect, the casting is perfect, and the cinematography is fantastic. I don't think I could of picked a better crew/cast to betray America's greatest family. This has never been done before, a look inside the lives of all the Kennedys in their good times and bad. A lot of people attempt to pull off Kennedy accents and the whole cast nails it. I hope to see something happen after the end of this 8 episode mini-series. *Highly recommended if you're a fan of history, the Kennedys, and fantastic shows*
