Now that a network has elected to air it, we can take a look at the controversial 'Kennedys' mini-series.

The eight part series, produced by noted conservative Joel Surnow, was pulled from its scheduled airing by The History Channel after complaints from the Kennedy family and a protest led by liberal filmmaker Robert Greenwald, was finally picked up by ReelzChannel on Wednesday after another series of rejections, led by Showtime's passing. The pickup was a savior for the expensive series, led by Greg Kinnear (JFK) and Katie Holmes (Jackie Kennedy).

ReelzChannel has released a preview for the stormy epic, which examines John F. Kennedy's time in the Presidency, up to his assassination in 1963. For more on the series, including controversial looks at the Kennedys' alleged womanizing, read the leaked preview here.
