CHICAGO (thefutoncritic.com) -- Showtime has scheduled the controversial CBS mini-series "The Reagans" for Sunday, November 30 at 8:00/7:00c.
"We have the utmost respect for the filmmakers of 'THE REAGANS' and are pleased to be airing the movie the way they envisioned it," said Robert Greenblatt, Showtime's President of Entertainment said in a press release. "They've worked diligently to craft the movie as honestly and balanced as possible."
Originally intended as a two-part mini-series, the pay channel will run "The Reagans" as one complete three-hour telefilm. CBS sold the project to Showtime earlier this month after various publications and political pundits called into question the mini-series' authenticity (read the story).
