It may not have Miley Cyrus in the lead, but History and Lifetime's collaborative 'Bonnie & Clyde' miniseries will prove to be a star-studded affair nonetheless. Previously casting Hollywood stars William Hurt and Holly Hunter, the upcoming miniseries has finally cast its iconic leads with 'Into the Wild' star Emile Hirsch and 'The Borgias' star Holliday Grainger. Will the updated 'Bonnie & Clyde' prove a modern classic akin to 'Hatfields and McCoys,' or end up shot by the roadside?

History Developing 'Hatfields & McCoy's Reality Series?

These days, one of the surest ways to capitalize on an original blockbuster success is to develop a reality series inspired by its premise. We saw an example earlier this week with The CW putting into development a reality series with a striking similarity to 'The Hunger Games,' though this may be the most surprising example to date. Based on the runaway award-winning success of History's 'Hatfields & McCoys' the cable channel is going back to the well to develop a reality TV series around the descendants of the famous family. Will it be just as buzz-worthy?

It seems you just can't keep 'The Kennedys' down, no matter how hard history tries.  Earlier in the month we'd heard chatter that ReelzChannel might be looking to follow up its successful historical mini-series 'The Kennedys' with a sequel series following the later generations, and now it seems the network has made it official.  But what will provide the source material for the new mini-series, and who might take part from the previous outing?

But didn't they...hmm. It's of interest to note that while nowhere near the storied history of the famous Kennedy family itself, historical miniseries 'The Kennedys' went through quite a bit of controversy in its own right just to make it to air the first time around. Dumped by The History Channel and largely eschewed by every other network, the Greg Kinnear/Katie Holmes political dramatization eventually landed on ReelzChannel to mixed reviews, but is a sequel now in the works?

It's hard to think of Miley Cyrus as anything other than Hannah Montana, even now when she's smoking bongs, cutting her hair to look like Draco Malfoy and getting engaged to 'The Hunger Games' heartthrob Liam Hemsworth. Perhaps if she lands a gig on the Lifetime network playing one of the most infamously recognized criminals in history, she'll be able to completely break that image.
