For more than half a century, the world has been captivated by the Kennedys, America’s “royal family.” The Kennedys: After Camelot provides an engrossing and unflinching look at the family’s life in the years following the murders of President John F Kennedy and his brother Bobby. The ground-breaking miniseries brings the remaining Kennedys to life showing the challenges faced by the widows and their children and by Ted Kennedy, the youngest brother, whose task was to uphold the Kennedy name and to take up their political mantle. The miniseries covers the years from 1968 to1999, and uses public events as a background to tell the intimate story of this iconic family as it struggles to come to terms with what Jackie Kennedy Onassis herself called “the end of Camelot.”
This is a drama about remarkable achievements and private failures, about love and heartbreak, triumphs and tragedies, about people imbued with great gifts and burdened by great flaws. Though we touch on the stories of many of the Kennedy family members in this ensemble drama, we concentrate primarily on Jackie, Edward (Ted) and John Jr. They were the last standing Queen, King and Prince of a great American dynasty. Script by Stephen Kronish (The Kennedys) . Based on the New York Times bestselling book “After Camelot: A Personal History of the Kennedy Family 1968 to the Present,” by J. Randy Taraborrelli.
