REELZ TO DEVELOP MINISERIES BASED ON J. RANDY TARABORRELLI'S BESTSELLING BOOK "AFTER CAMELOT"

Book Rights Have Been Acquired by Muse Entertainment Enterprises

Book Traces the Story of the Kennedy Family Since 1968

(Albuquerque, NM) Thursday, November 15, 2012 - ReelzChannel - TV About Movies(R) today announced that the rights to J. Randy Taraborrelli's bestselling book After Camelot, which is a personal history of the Kennedy family from 1968 to the present, have been acquired by Muse Entertainment Enterprises and that REELZ has entered into a co-development agreement with Muse Entertainment Enterprises to produce a miniseries. Muse Entertainment Enterprises will be responsible for production of the miniseries and for international distribution. Keri Selig of Intuition Productions brought the project to REELZ and will serve as an executive producer. The miniseries based on After Camelot marks the third collaboration between Muse Entertainment Enterprises and REELZ including the Emmy Award(R) winning The Kennedys and the WWII-era drama series Bomb Girls.

"With The Kennedys miniseries we saw tremendous response to powerful storytelling along with an intense interest in this remarkable family. In his book, J. Randy Taraborrelli tells the incredible true story of the Kennedys from 1968 to today," said Stan E. Hubbard, CEO of ReelzChannel. "The Kennedy family is truly a part of the fabric of America and we're thrilled to once again work with our partners at Muse Entertainment Enterprises to bring our viewers this fascinating and continuing story."

"The Kennedy family continued to make an indelible mark on the life of America and the world after Robert Kennedy's assassination, including universal healthcare and the creation of the Special Olympics," said Michael Prupas, President and CEO of Muse Entertainment Enterprises. "We are privileged to collaborate with REELZ, with J. Randy Taraborrelli and with Keri Selig to bring After Camelot to television audiences."

"J. Randy Taraborrelli is one of the great biographers of our time and I'm proud to be working with him on this project," said Keri Selig, Owner and Founder of Intuition Productions. "As soon as I read After Camelot, I knew that REELZ, with their dedication to high-quality television and respectful handling of The Kennedys miniseries, was the perfect home for this modern epic. I'm thrilled to continue my collaboration with Muse having worked with them on the movie It Must Be Love and I look forward to forming a new relationship with REELZ on this miniseries for After Camelot."

After Camelot - A Personal History of the Kennedy Family 1968 to the Present is based on J. Randy Taraborrelli's extensive research, including hundreds of exclusive interviews and captures the wealth, glamour and fortitude for which the Kennedys are so well known. Like the book takes its readers, the miniseries will take its viewers on an epic journey of the ongoing saga of the nation's most famous - and controversial - family.

After Camelot is the most recent of J. Randy Taraborrelli's 13 New York Times bestsellers. He is also the author of Jackie, Ethel, Joan - Women of Camelot, another New York Times bestseller for him in hard cover and paperback, as well as a highly-rated miniseries for NBC starring Jill Hennessey as Jackie Kennedy and Lauren Holly as Ethel Kennedy. Moreover, he is the author of Michael Jackson - The Magic and the Madness (also nominated for a W.H. Smith award in England) as well as Call Her Miss Ross; The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe; Madonna - An Intimate Biography and Elizabeth Taylor, all New York Times bestsellers.

When The Kennedys made its world premiere on REELZ, the miniseries brought in record viewership for the network, reaching 17.5 million viewers* in its premiere month and grossing more than 35 million viewers since debuting in April 2011.
