Killing Kennedy: First look

It’s 1959. Two men face major turning points in their lives: one is in Washington, D.C. about to announce his candidacy for president of the United States; the other is at the U.S. Embassy in Moscow about to renounce his U.S. citizenship forever. These two seemingly unrelated events send the men on a cataclysmic path that will alter the course of history.

National Geographic Channel’s Killing Kennedy, based on the best-selling book by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard, chronicles this build-up to one of America’s most shocking events: the assassination of President John F. Kennedy by Lee Harvey Oswald.

Starring Rob Lowe (President Kennedy), Ginnifer Goodwin (Jacqueline Kennedy), Will Rothhaar (Lee Harvey Oswald) and Michelle Trachtenberg (Marina Oswald) in her first Russian speaking role, the film charts the highs and lows of two lives that would eventually intersect and result in, not one, but two horrific murders that would stun a nation and mark the end of an era.

Killing Kennedy will premiere in November on the National Geographic Channel in the UK and globally in 171 countries and in 38 languages to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the John Kennedy’s assassination.
