NEW YORK, Nov. 18 (UPI) -- The cable network Showtime announced it will air the controversial miniseries "The Reagans," sooner than expected, on Nov. 30.

The miniseries was originally scheduled to air on CBS during the November ratings sweeps, but after details of the series were reported, the network pulled the project and assigned it to its sister cable channel.

Showtime had been expected to air it sometime next year but said it will air an edited version of the four-hour film that reflects the vision of producers Craig Zadan, Neil Meron and Robert Allan Ackerman.

"They've worked diligently to craft the movie as honestly and balanced as possible," Robert Greenblatt, Showtime's president of entertainment, said in a statement.

Brent Baker, vice president of the watchdog group the Media Research Center, who has seen reports of the film said, "It's a mocking film of him as kind of a befuddled old guy playing second fiddle to Nancy and other operatives," the Boston Globe reported.
