The Kennedy clan is fuming as Katie Holmes readies to play Jackie Onassis in yet another mini-series, The Kennedys: After Camelot.

Holmes, 35, starred as the former First Lady in 2011’s The Kennedys, which aired on Reelz after being dropped by The History Channel amid whispers the political dynasty wanted the show yanked. “The family is stunned Katie didn’t get the message the first time,” an insider tells The National ENQUIRER.

In fact, Holmes is getting even more involved this time around. Not only is she taking on the lead role, she’s also executive producing the miniseries and directing one episode in the four-part project that will premiere in 2016.

The Kennedys was a brilliant execution of storytelling based on the lives of one of the world’s best known families,” ReelzChannel CEO, Stan E. Hubbard, says. “Katie elegantly portrayed Jackie Kennedy in the first miniseries and now will continue the role as Jackie grows into the Jackie O that the world knows best.”
