Joining Lowe in the cast will be Ginnifer Goodwin, as Jacqueline Kennedy, and Michelle Trachtenberg, as Marina Oswald, Lee Harvey Oswald’s wife.
“We are thrilled to be working with Rob Lowe, Ginnifer Goodwin and Michelle Trachtenberg, three gifted artists whom have responded to this timely, authentic and entertaining material,” Howard T. Owens, president of the National Geographic Channels, said in a statement. “With Killing Kennedy, timed to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the assassination of JFK, National Geographic Channel continues to bring daring, culturally significant television events to our growing global audience.”
According to the Virginia Film Office, the four week shoot will start June 10 in Richmond.
