More outlets have turned down airing the controversial miniseries "The Kennedys," the multimillion-dollar production that was initially rejected by the History Channel.
The latest distributor to pass is DirecTV, reports our friend Scott Collins at the Los Angeles Times’ ShowTracker blog.
Collins wrote about the DirecTV turn-down, "That’s bad news for the producers, who had hoped that the satellite TV provider would offer a last-minute rescue for a $30-million project that has already been rejected by Starz, Showtime, FX and other outlets."
The article does not mentio the name of the other outlets that have also turned down the miniseries.
The piece says that the producers’ next move isn’t clear, although they say the miniseries will still air in Canada regardless of what happens in the U.S.
