'JACKIE: BEHIND CLOSED DOORS' - JACQUELINE BOUVIER KENNEDY ONASSIS DOCUMENTARY SPECIAL WILL PREMIERE SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 7 AT 9PM ET/ 6PM PT
NBC's Natalie Morales Hosts a Complete Look at the Life and Legacy of an American Icon
(Albuquerque, NM) Wednesday, October 7, 2015 - REELZ announced today its two hour original documentary special Jackie: Behind Closed Doors will premiere Saturday, November 7, 2015 at 9pm ET/ 6pm PT. Hosted by Natalie Morales of NBC News' TODAY and produced by NBC News' Peacock Productions, the special will explore the life and legacy of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis. Jackie: Behind Closed Doors examines the story of a young woman, celebrated as a beautiful and stylish political wife. Later, as a young widow, she led a grieving nation and was widely praised for her grace and composure. But what was behind that dazzling smile? This is the portrait of Jackie that, until now, has remained behind closed doors.
Capitalizing on the vast offerings of the NBC News historical archives, the documentary will feature interviews with historians, biographers and contemporaries of the former first lady - as well as her own interviews - to tell this uniquely American story of success, heartache, survival and reinvention while sharing new revelations that will uncover previously unknown facts and insights into her life. As Jackie herself said: "Maybe I'm just dazzled and picture myself in a glittering world of crowned heads and Men of Destiny and not just a sad little housewife...That world can be very glamorous from the outside but if you're in it and you're lonely it could be a hell." Jackie: Behind Closed Doors is produced by Peacock Productions, a division of NBC News.
