App DescriptionFor the first time ever. An Emmy award-winning miniseries available as an app. Starring Greg Kinnear as John F. Kennedy and Katie Holmes as Jacqueline Kennedy, the 8-part series directed by Jon Cassar also stars Barry Pepper and Tom Wilkinson. The controversial TV show is presented in HD and is inspired by one the world’s most iconic families.
They’ve been called America’s royal family. But that does them – and the country – little justice. Royals are born to their status. The Kennedy’s made themselves into theirs in an utterly American way, through driving ambition, hard work and, when necessary, a willingness to toss the rule book aside.
They inspired a generation, and they’re still the yardstick against which charismatic politicians are measured. But behind closed doors they lived a complex mixture of loyalty and love, resentment and betrayal, physical courage and emotional inadequacy.
The Kennedy’s app contains the eight-hour miniseries, which is not a documentary. It is a historically accurate dramatization in which affairs of state played out in the Oval Office and in the Cabinet Room take a back seat to the intense and often volatile personal relationships that existed far from the prying eyes of the media.
This app allows you to stream the entire miniseries right to your iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. The first episode is included for FREE when you download the app. There is also a "watch later" function that allows you to download any episode into your digital locker to watch when do not have an Internet connection. You can also stream the video right from your device to an HDTV with a connected Apple TV or Boxee Box via AirPlay. The app also allows you to create clips of your favorite moments from any episode and share them on Facebook, Twitter and via email. The images section showcases some amazing imagery from the series and behind the scenes.

THE KENNEDYS portrays these most public of figures in their most private moments of happiness, despair, intimacy and estrangement. It depicts them as neither gods nor as monsters but as people who possessed, as we all do, attributes of both. History tells us what they did. THE KENNEDYS tells us who they were.
Starring Academy Award nominees GREG KINNEAR as John Kennedy and TOM WILKINSON as family patriarch Joe Senior, BARRY PEPPER as Bobby and KATIE HOLMES as Jackie.
