It’s the return of Camelot!

The eight-part Kennedy miniseries, The Kennedys,  that starred Greg Kinnear and Katie Holmes and premiered on Reelz channel in April 2011, is getting a sequel of sorts.

Reelz announced today that rights to J. Randy Taraborrelli’s bestselling book After Camelot: A Personal History of the Kennedy Family 1968 to the Present have been acquired by Muse Entertainment Enterprises and that REELZ has entered a co-development agreement with Muse to produce a miniseries.

“With The Kennedys miniseries we saw tremendous response to powerful storytelling along with an intense interest in this remarkable family. In his book, J. Randy Taraborrelli tells the incredible true story of the Kennedys from 1968 to today,” Stan E. Hubbard, CEO of REELZCHANNEL, said in a press release. “The Kennedy family is truly a part of the fabric of America and we’re thrilled to once again work with our partners at Muse Entertainment Enterprises to bring our viewers this fascinating and continuing story.”

Reelz Channel Picks Up US Rights To Pillars Of The Earth Sequel

May 25, 2012 Leave a comment

Last year, premium cable channel Starz aired an eight hour mini-series based on acclaimed Welsh author Ken Follett’s epic historical fiction novel The Pillars Of The Earth. The program did very well, both critically and in the ratings, garnering seven Emmy nominations when it was all said and done. After the Starz exclusivity window finished, cable network ReelzChannel acquired the series for non-premium airings, also to great success.

Now it seems that Reelz has opted to cut out the middle man, as the network has directly acquired the first premiere rights to the mini-series adaptation of Follett’s sequel novel, World Without End. Reelz has seen first hand what an exclusive deal on a mini-series can get you, as the network picked up controversial drama The Kennedys last year, and was rewarded with huge publicity, critical acclaim, and new cable companies signing up to carry the channel. ReelzChannel SEO Stan Hubbard had this to say about the move – “With The Kennedys we conditioned our audience to know that our network is home to the biggest miniseries, and World Without End is exactly that.”

World Without End was filmed on a hefty budget (for TV) of 46 million dollars, and picks up the story some 200 years after the conclusion of Pillars. The all new cast of characters is led by “Caris (Charlotte Riley), who inspires her medieval town to confront the Church and the Crown as they fight to save their town from ruin and, ultimately, usher in a new era of freedom, innovation and enlightenment”. The cast also includes Cynthia Nixon, Miranda Richardson, Ben Chaplin, Peter Firth and Sarah Gadon.

Are you interested in watching World Without End? Do you think it will be better or worse than The Pillars Of The Earth?
