Normally TV productions are outside of our wheelhouse, but when Steven Spielberg and his Amblin Entertainment banner round up some A-list talent to bring to life letters from around the world sent to Jackie Kennedy in the wake of the assassination of her husband and President of the United States of America, John F. Kennedy, we're inclined to pay attention. Letters to Jackie is a new TV documentary based on Ellen Fitzpatrick's book of the same name which looks at more than 800,000 letters, read by Jessica Chastain, Channing Tatum, Frances McDormand, Zooey Deschanel, Anne Hathaway and more. Now a trailer for the TV doc airing on TLC this fall has arrived, and it's really very touching.
Here's the first trailer for Bill Couturié's doc Letters to Jackie, found via The Playlist:
