The Jackson family name has long been synonymous with fame, fortune and controversy.
In The Jacksons: Next Generation, which starts on Wednesday 16 March at 20:45, this six-part series reveals an inside look into the lives of members of this iconic family. After the passing of the legendary Michael Jackson, the responsibility of managing the Jackson family legacy fell onto the shoulders of Tito's sons: Taryll, Taj and TJ.
Told from their perspective, The Jacksons: Next Generation grants viewers an unprecedented look into the inner workings of the Jackson family and the heart, drama and chaos that inevitably accompany each family member.
The siblings, known as the music group 3T, have toured and sold more than three million records worldwide just off their debut album. Still impacted by the loss of their mother, Dee Dee, the brothers are raising their children and managing the day-to-day tasks within their families, just like everyone else. Their quest for normalcy, however, often collides head-on with the good and bad of living with one of history’s most renowned last names. The series reveals what it’s like for them living with the last name Jackson, including how they deal with constant rumors, stalkers, and frauds who all want a piece of anything and anyone related to the family’s legacy.
Produced by Go Go Luckey Entertainment, the series is executive produced by Henry Capanna, Julie Auerbach, Tina Gazzerro, Dennis Principe, Taj Jackson, Taryll Jackson, TJ Jackson, Megan McGuiness and Henri Hebert. Lifetime’s Eli Lehrer, Mary Donahue and Kimberly Chessler also executive produce.
