Photos: First Look - Will Rothhaar & Michelle Trachtenberg in Nat Geo's KILLING KENNEDY

Below, check out a first look at Will Rothhaar as Lee Harvey Oswald and Michelle Trachtenberg as Marina Oswald on the set of National Geographic Channel's KILLING KENNEDY, which started production this month in Richmond, Va. Nat Geo will air the television event this November.

Based on the best-selling book by Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard, the film chronicles one of the most shocking events in American history, following two men from very different backgrounds on a collision course with fate. Killing Kennedy will premiere on the National Geographic Channel later this year in the United States and globally in 171 countries and 38 languages, timed to the 50th anniversary of the assassination.

Killing Kennedy begins in 1959, at major turning points for both the future president and his assassin. John F. Kennedy is in Washington, D.C., announcing his presidential candidacy, while Lee Harvey Oswald finds himself in the U.S. embassy in Moscow, renouncing his U.S. citizenship. These two events start both men - one a member of one of the United States' most wealthy and powerful families, the other a disillusioned former Marine and Marxist - on a cataclysmic track that would alter the course of history. Throughout we see their highs and lows, culminating in not one but two shocking deaths that stunned the nation.
