Jeff Beal (House of Cards, Rome, Monk, Carnivale, Pollock, The Biggest Little Farm) is reuniting with Oliver Stone (Born on the Fourth of July, Platoon) on the upcoming docu-series JFK: Destiny Betrayed. The show follows Stone and writer James DiEugenio (author of Destiny Betrayed: JFK, Cuba, and the Garrison Case) as they place now declassified files related to President Kennedy’s assassination in  a far larger context, aiming to shine more light on what really happened in 1963. Beal has previously collaborated with Stone on the Showtime series The Putin Interviews, for which he earned an Emmy nomination for Best Theme Music in 2018. “I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to collaborate with Oliver Stone once again,” says Beal. “In spending time together working on The Putin Interviews project, we felt very much like kindred spirits in terms of process, how we think about film, and what our aesthetic is.” Cinematographer Robert Richardson (Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood, The Aviator), who won the first of his three Academy Awards for Stone’s JFK, is also involved in the series. Stuart Ford and Lourdes Diaz are executive producing the project for AGC Television, alongside Ingenious Media’s Andrea Scarso, Amit Pandya & Peter Touche, as well as Angela Ceccio and Fernando Sulichin (Snowden). JFK: Destiny Betrayed is expected to premiere later this year.

Beal also has the feature documentary Console Wars coming up. The film is directed by Jonah Tulis & Blake J. Harris and tells the behind-the-scenes story of how Sega took on the juggernaut Nintendo and revolutionized the video game industry. Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg & James Weaver (This Is the End, Good Boys), as well as Scott Rudin (The Social Network, No Country for Old Men) and Eli Bush (Lady Bird, Uncut Gems) are among the project’s producers. Console Wars will debut at this year’s SXSW Film Festival and is expected to premiere later in 2020 on CBS All Access.

    Allen Dulles most likely orchestrated the hit. He had the means, the moxy, and the motive. He removed “his footprints” as a central figure on the Warren Commission. Putting him on that commission was like asking the fox to watch the henhouse.

    Sam Giancana contributed manpower: Joe Kennedy asked Chicago mafia bosses for help to swing the 1960 election for JFK. After elected, Robert Kennedy almost put the mafia out of business.

    Tippit murder is the Rosetta Stone for showing Oswald was not a lone gunman, if he ever fired a shot.

    Rose Cheramie’s prediction of NOV 20 1963 came true 2 days later, then she referred to Jack Ruby (Rubenstein) and Lee Harvey Oswald as “those two queer SOBs” and Oswald also closely associated with David Ferrie and Clay Shaw. Why didn’t Warren Commission interview Rose Cheramie, when her testimony gave them the portrait of Oswald they needed? Loner and alienated, having troubles with intimacy with his wife, living a lie and became unhinged! Perfect with the homophobia of early 60s. Problem was those people were part of the conspiracy.

    Is this all covered in the upcoming special with Oliver Stone?
