Katie Holmes in “Kennedys” DVD, available for pre-order

By: Sean O'Connell

It was a controversial television mini-series that struggled to find a home before landing on Reelz Channel. Now you’ll have the ability to bring “The Kennedys” into your own home starting on May 15.

Muse Distribution International has begun taking pre-orders for the DVD. The three-disc package contains every episode of the “Kennedys” series, with 45 minutes of bonus footage including “Making of the Kennedys.”

From the release:

Following the family from the 1930s to 1968, the miniseries provides an intimate look at how Joseph Kennedy Sr. shaped his sons John and Robert to become two of the most influential men in the country. The major political events of the era, such as the Bay of Pigs invasion, the Cuban Missile Crisis and the civil rights movement, play in the background of the personal relationships between brother and brother, father and sons and husbands and wives. THE KENNEDYS recounts the scandal, tragedy, public greatness and private frailty of America’s fabled political family during one of the most momentous decades in history.
