They’re American royalty, in spite of everything.
Netflix is making a restricted TV sequence about President John F. Kennedy, sources instructed Variety Oct. 13. In keeping with the insiders, the present will doubtless be much like the Netflix sequence The Crown, which follows the lifetime of Queen Elizabeth II beginning along with her childhood on to her coronation and 70-year reign. (The primary a part of the sixth and last season of the royal drama will debut on Nov. 16, with the final batch dropping Dec. 14.)
Oscar winner Eric Roth—who wrote Dune and Forrest Gump—will write the script and govt produce the upcoming Kennedy present, together with Hidden Figures producers Peter Chernin and Jenno Topping, per Selection.
It is reportedly primarily based on the ebook JFK: Coming Of Age In The American Century, 1917-1956 by Fredrik Logevall, which is the primary of a two-volume set.
“The novel efficiently unveils John F. Kennedy’s early relationships, his formative WWII experiences, his concepts, writings, and most importantly his political aspirations,” per a synopsis of the ebook, “which the creator believed took form at an early age and had been impartial of his father’s want for him to enter public life.”
