Katie Holmes will once again be portraying Jackie Kennedy in THE KENNEDYS-AFTER CAMELOT. The follow up to the 2011 miniseries The Kennedys will air on Reelz and Canada’s Corus Entertainment in 2016. This time around, Holmes will executive produce and direct one episode of the four-part series, with Kennedys helmer Jon Cassar back to direct the other three. Stephen Kronish penned the script based on J. Randy Taraborrelli’s novel After Camelot: A Personal History of the Kennedy Family 1968 to the Present.
Holmes got her start on TV, starring as Joey on Dawson’s Creek before going on to big screen roles in Batman Begins, Phone Booth, and Thank You for Smoking. More recently, Holmes has appeared in Phillip Noyce’s The Giver. Next up, Holmes will star in the indie drama Miss Meadows as a vigilante schoolteacher and in Woman in Gold, a BBC Films drama about a Jewish refugee who sues the government to recover her family’s stolen artwork.
Holmes is repped by ICM and Untitled Entertainment.
