Playtone, HBO Making JFK Miniseries


Posted June 7, 2007 - By Mike D'Alonzo

Tom Hanks' production company, Playtone, along with HBO and Bill Paxton are producing a miniseries about JFK, based on famed author Vincent Bugliosi's book, "Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy." The interesting news is that the miniseries will try to debunk any sort of conspiracy theory and prove that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in Kennedy's assassination.

In addition, the network will produce a companion documentary in which Bugliosi addresses conspiracy theories one by one and shoots them all down. Bugliosi, the author of the important Charles Manson manuscript Helter Sketler, thinks that the tandem projects will help "make a dent" in the 75% of Americans who believe that there was some sort of conspiracy.
