Fox News will air a documentary on the Chappaquiddick incident involving Sen. Ted Kennedy starting Sunday.

Fox News Channel will air the second season of its “Scandalous” series this weekend, focusing on the Chappaquiddick crash involving U.S. Sen. Ted Kennedy and the death of Mary Jo Kopechne, a campaign worker for the late Robert F. Kennedy in the summer of 1969.

The documentary series is split into four one-hour long episodes that will air over the next four weeks. They are narrated by actor Bruce McGill and promise new photos of the tragic incident that occurred on Martha’s Vineyard nearly 50 years ago.

Through archival footage, records and never-before seen photos, the series will revisit the daily twists and turns of the drama that first captivated the world nearly 50 years ago,” a press release from Fox News Channel states.

The show will air on Fox News Channel on Sunday, Dec. 2 at 8 pm.


  1. good ol’ fox entertainment– they need a good distraction from the current scandals. Amazing that they can milk one story about a prominent democrat for 50 years..

    • Aint no milking about it. It’s history. Teddy got drunk and left yhe scene of an accident. The arrogance of him and his family is astounding. Milking a story? Ha! Hopefully exposing this criminally arrogant family will happen
      This is just the tip of the iceberg. The Clintons make the Kennedys look like the jv team.

      • You’re campaigning against Ted Kennedy as if he’s going to make a run for the White House in 2020. He died nine years ago.

  2. gigi– Lets face it, fox would have us believe that the Kennedy’s and the Clinton’s were corrupt. There were things that are arguably not entirely above board with both families. You can focus on them all you want, but the reality is that we currently have a family in the white house that is racking up a record numbers of indictments , have corrupt financial deals that are so massive they clearly violate the constitution, and , do you really want to go there with ethical behavior ?
    Don’t focus on the rear view mirror ( we could talk about Nixon , if you want. ).
    Have you any understanding of the word “arrogance” ?

    • You’re right Don; the Teddy scandal is getting a little stale. Besides, in this day and age of #me too and all that good stuff we need to work the ladies into the scandal stream – speaking of senators, how about lying about your heritage to get points and favor?

      • Like how Germany expelled Trump’s father, wouldn’t let him back in? They didn’t have college deferments or bone spurs back in those days.

  3. Leave Nixon alone….ended the draft, ended the vietnam war, got us through an arab oil embargo, balanced the budget, started the EPA,ended daylight savings time..Im sure theres more …noone else comes close in my lifetime.

  4. dondondon you have been milking the Trump narrative for two years. Since election day you have had your knickers in a twist about him you cant let it go. He hasnt done anything as dastardly as Kennedy. Oh I forgot tear gas at the border is a heinous crime and opting out of a climate accord that no one will honor and no one cares about is worse than Kennedy’s ”mistakes”.

    • Let we forget how some have maintained their Hillary scandals long past when evidence was indroduced that the uranium was not hers to sell, the GOP had cut spending for embassy security, there was no way military could have reached Benghazi in time, none of the emails on Hillary’s private server were top secret, Hillary’s server wasn’t even hacked, and Hillary chuckled when discussing with another attorney *outside of court* an absurd technicality that someone tried in court. And Hillary didn’t want to defend the guy, the judge said she had to. Congress used how many decades and how much taxpayer money to finally admit all of this?

      Andrew, your dedication is not admired. You’ve been “milking” the Hillary narrative for longer than she was considered a candidate for POTUS. When you defend Trump, you defend a rape culture, you defend a man on record for taking pride in being a sex molester, on record for encouraging violence, on record for denigrating troops who have served in battle. Not sure how anyone can justify that to themselves, you seem to have.

      • newenglander I defend Trump on his policies which strengthen our country. I do not defend him morally or as a man of great character and integrity. He is certainly no role model for me. Jimmy Carter is a man of integrity and respectability but his policy decisions were poorly conceived on many levels. do you not see the difference?. We are not electing a man due to honor and character. We are electing a President on ideology. I dont want more taxes, judicial activism, partial birth abortion, and open borders. I do not want sanctuary cities, mass entitlements,dubious obsession with climate change. You dont have to agree with me on those policies but do you see the difference in why someone elects Trump over Hilary. You defended Bill Clinton on all manner of misbehavior. I believe Obama is a man of sound character but he cant manage worth a nickel. All of a sudden you Dems have righteous indignation about morality and character when you overlooked it for ages.

    • I know, right, Andrew? Imagine being all worked up about a Christian guy like Trump who hangs with the best and brightest. What’s that Aesop nonsense about “A man is known by the company he keeps” anyway? Remember when your hero promised he’d “surround myself only with the best and most serious people” — “We want top-of-the-line professionals.” And look at the undastardly people from his administration: Papadopoulos, Manafort, Rick Gates, Michael Flynn, Michael Cohen. Fine fellows, all. Who’d I leave out? Life moves forward, not backwards. But yeah, let’s talk about the Clintons and Kennedys this week, just as Mueller closes in. Remember when Republicans were decent and good? I do. I remember people like George H W Bush, may his memory be a blessing. I remember when indiscriminately gassing immigrant thug women and children was actually heinous. Not any more, according to the good white Christians like Trump and his immoral sheep masquerading as Christians.

  5. Jackie, I don’t believe Trump is a Christian. But you are free to give me a definition. Tear gas was used at the Border by Obama—-do your homework. Mueller isn’t closing in since there is no proof of collusion and even if there was, collusion is not a crime. You folks have a permanent obsession with Trump. Politically what Mueller reports will be damaging because people like you can’t separate fact from fiction but Mueller is providing a prosecutors report and of course it will be damning. We won’t hear the defenders report and you don’t want to either. All those tertiary figures you name are insignificant. We and Russia have been intefering into elections for 50 years—- what is new? Hilary lost due to 4 states. Do you really want me to enumerate the morally indefensible actions of Dems in our lifetime?

  6. The Island is being used. Two seasons to tell the story of the events of one night. That’s on topic. There’s an easy solution here but you are desperate to win and in this case, winning is losing.

  7. The Island is being used? You must be living on a different planet, keeping Martha’s Vineyard on TV builds the brand, increases property values, attracts tourists. Martha’s Vineyards resource is its brand scandals help build the brand. The die has been cast the economy depends on it.

  8. Misery acquaints a man with strange bedfellows.
    If you put yourself in the spotlight with bad behavior and people defend it and you, it seems that it will alway be argued.
