24 Co-Creator Pitching Miniseries About the Kennedys

24 co-creator Joel Surnow has a project about a different government up his sleeve. This weekend, he'll be pitching a 10-hour miniseries about the Kennedy family, with "a major US cable network" already in talks to release it.

Surnow is an avowed conservative, but the producers say the project "is neither a hatchet job nor a valentine." Instead:

The Kennedys are portrayed not as mythic figures but as human beings, capable of both greatness on a grand scale and all-too-human frailty on a private one. It is a window onto the emotional minefield that made the Kennedys what they were.

Surnow says The Kennedys will "unveil secrets" about the former first family, going inside the White House to tell the stories of the Bay of Pigs, the Cuban Missile Crisis, and the struggle for civil rights while showing how they fit into the context of personal Kennedy dramas.

The Kennedys have been pretty well-covered in our entertainment culture, but is there room for another Kennedy project from a new perspective? Does this miniseries intrigue you?

The subject of the Kennedy's has been done before - movies, books, documentaries, mini-series, etc., so this is NOT NEW or even interesting... UNLESS this one says that JFK LIVED after being shot but was left so severely brain that he was institutionalized like his poor sister Rose Marie, who was left severely brain damaged after a failed lobotomy to "cure" her of her self-destructive ways... - Pretty much everything is ALREADY known - There's really no reason for anyone to waste 10 HOURS of their lives watching this.

People need to get over the Kennedy Clan and all its history, etc. What do you think would have happened had JFK not been killed? Would we still have this fascination with that bunch? Then again, I'm sure the American public would have found another group to go gaga over.

It intrigues me but I have an all too strong feeling that it's going to be biased.
