America's Most Fabled and Fateful Family : For the first time in TV history, a full ten hours has been dedicated to Americas most fabled and controversial family. Through four generations of Kennedys and featuring a wide range of interviews (from political analyst Lawrence ODonnell to JFK Jrs friends to Ron Galella, Americas most notorious paparazzo) we see great triumphs, but also layers of human frailty, folly, and, most certainly, tragedy. From the hard-nosed streets of turn-of-the-century Boston, through to the corridors of power in Washington, Wall Street, and Hollywood, each episode takes a contemporary spin on the most fascinating events from the family's rich history.
Unusual accidents, untimely deaths – why do so many tragedies afflict one family? The Kennedys willingness to risk everything and live by their own rules leads the family to the heights of the American Dream..
They are the ultimate Alpha Males, the very symbols of confidence and charm. But behind the clean-cut images reside complex psychological dimensions fueled by war and personal rivalries and the quest for power. Who are the men behind the tans and smiles? Who are the real Kennedy Brothers?
Before Jay-Z & Beyonce or Bill & Hillary or Brangelina, there’s Jack and Jackie, the original ‘power couple.’ Together they conquer the world, even as their private marriage is rocked by infidelity, heart-break, and power plays.

No family knows what a powerful image can do better than the Kennedy’s. They created a carefully crafted image that helped catapult them to the forefront of American politics and into the hearts of the America people. From fashion statements to Presidential mannerisms, here is how the Kennedys redefine ‘the Image’ of power and set new standards for the rich and powerful.
Behind every Kingdom there is a fortune. The Kennedys may be America’s most public family but when the subject turns to money their silence is deafening.
Every family has them. But no family has built higher walls around their secrets than the Kennedys, who fend off relentless attacks from the media and the tabloids to protect the family’s reputation and ambitions. Their commitment to their image is so ingrained that it transcends PR and strikes deep with the Kennedy clan itself - where secrets are kept even between family members, and threats to the status quo can lead to excommunication and worse.
The Kennedys have gone from America’s most admired (even martyred) family to ‘presumed guilty.’ A series of hi-profile Kennedy criminal cases guarantee America will rush to judgment. These cases reveal the double-edged sword of fame and privilege.
John Kennedy Jr. has it all: wealth, looks, an easy charm. More than any Kennedy of his generation, he seems to wear the crown lightly - George Clooney with a political pedigree. But while he appears carefree and lighthearted in public, he always works from a carefully-written script— one that was started virtually the moment he was born.
