Katie Holmes is returning to the role of Jackie Kennedy in Reelz Channel’s The Kennedys – After Camelot, a follow-up series to its eight-episode 2011 miniseries The Kennedys, EW has confirmed.
Holmes is also set to direct one of the four episodes that will comprise After Camelot. Jon Cassar will direct the other three episodes after having been behind the camera for all eight episodes of the original Kennedys series.
Production on the series will begin in 2015 with a planned premiere on Reelz some time in 2016. Holmes will executive-produce the miniseries, which is based on J. Randy Taraborrelli’s book After Camelot: A Personal History of the Kennedy Family 1968 to the Present.
Now that Marvel has conquered the cineplex, the studio is looking to take over the small screen too. At New York Comic Con today, the studio offered an intriguing first look at its new Daredevil TV series, which is set to debut on Netflix next year with Boardwalk Empire‘s Charlie Cox as the blind lawyer/superhero.

The rights soon reverted to the studio, and Quesada’s first choice — Charlie Cox — indeed won the role.
2. Rosario Dawson may be the Night Nurse: The Comic Con panel, moderated by Loeb, featured the series’ entire main cast except for Rosario Dawson, whose previously undisclosed role was finally revealed.

Loeb described her as a “nurse who works at night,” indicating that she may inherit the mantle of Night Nurse. Temple’s involvement is a bit of a surprise since she’s traditionally associated with Luke Cage, a.k.a. Power Man, a character for whom Netflix is developing a separate series. READ FULL STORY
