The US drama that premiered in the states on 3rd April will be released here just days later on Thursday 7th April on Sky HISTORY Channel. Creating a wave of controversy in the US, the new 8-part docu-drama series reveals the joys and tragedies, both public and private, of America’s royalty.

This bold account of America’s most iconic family is a glimpse into fraternal rivalries, narcotics use, and extra-marital flings.

The controversy has arisen with American History Channel’s decline to air the series and release of this statement: ‘While the film is produced and acted with the highest quality, after viewing the final product in its totality, we have concluded this dramatic interpretation is not a fit for the History brand.’

Some of the public would agree with the US History Channel and are saying the mini-series is fit for the tabloids.

Katie Holmes was on Jimmy Kimmel Sunday night and described the mini-series as a “Greek tragedy” in it’s setup and told Kimmel of the intention to show the human side of the famous dynasty that has become an idealised version of the real people.

Either way it will air on UK HISTORY Channel on 7th April and then on BBC2 around May/June…
