After a miniseries about the Kennedy family was pulled from the History Channel, Michael Prupas, the chief executive of Muse Entertainment, which produced the miniseries, said several U.S. networks have expressed interest in the program, reports The New York Times’ Arts Beat blog.

"They’re all viewing the material at the present time," he said, declining to name the networks. "The Kennedys" will be seen by viewers in Canada, Britain, Italy, Spain, Norway, Sweden, Australia and Japan, the story adds.

As previously reported, the eight-hour biographical film, which stars Greg Kinnear as President John F. Kennedy and Katie Holmes as Jackie Kennedy, was pulled from its spring debut on History this week, reportedly spurred by pressure from the Kennedy family.

History said the series was "not a fit for the History brand," while early drafts of the script had been criticized by historians as containing factual errors. Prupas told The New York Times that the miniseries “is based on the truth, reflects the truth, and if anything is a positive, very positive presentation of the Kennedy family.”
