NEW YORK – A reality show miniseries about the Jackson family will premiere Dec. 13 on A&E, the network says. Back-to-back hour episodes will air that night at 9 p.m. EST.

"The Jacksons: A Family Dynasty" focuses on brothers Jackie, Jermaine, Tito and Marlon as they prepare to reunite for a concert tour. It also chronicles their lives as they cope with Michael's drug-induced death in June.

There will be six episodes, the network said.

"This deeply intimate portrait will provide viewers with a raw and honest look inside a musical dynasty," said A&E and Bio Channel vice president Robert Sharenow.

It remained unclear whether Michael Jackson or his children, Paris, Prince Michael and Prince Michael II (known as Blanket), will be seen in the shows.

The cable network had originally announced "The Jacksons" as a documentary special in May, before the star's death. In August, "Entertainment Tonight" aired what A&E said was leaked footage from the special.

The 50-year-old King of Pop died June 25, weeks before he was scheduled to begin a string of comeback shows in London.


Are any of you planning on watching the show?
And if so, what are you expecting? Do you think one of them will let a little something slip? I personally hope so  ;)  :)

I have seen the A&E previews for the reality show. It comes on Dec 13th at 9pm Eastern Standard Time. I will watch it undoubtedly because I am curious to see what the brothers will do. I know in a trailer of it one of the brothers said MJ would never had been as big as he was if it weren't for Jackson 5. It sounded like jealousy to me. The simple fact of the matter was MJ taking off on his own and amasking fame and fortune out of this world and them never being able to hold a candle to him. Everytime they wanted to tour they had to beg and plead with MJ through his mom or attorneys to get him to participate. Why? Because the fans would only come to see MJ not just them. They were never marketable. They alone never sold tickets without MJ. Now that MJ has left the scene I honestly don't believe the fans will take to the brothers in lieu of him being out of the picture. Aside, from the some of the brothers ( Jermaine) having done horrible things to MJ trying to destroy him. They are not interesting at all. I know alot of us will tune in for clues only not just to see the brothers. Keep the Faith!

yep im watching. with my pint of ice cream. :roll:

there will be 2 new episodes premiered tonight.

Im sure it will all be about the brothers but not Michael. Seriously.. do they really think we wanna see them tour without Michael?
I don't mean to be mean. I really don't. But seriously.. Shamone! 8-)

I can't believe that crud. So Why was it all photographed and captured on film? Who the heck would wanna save footage like that for their personal collection? First off the funeral and memorial were disresespectful to MJ's memory if he really did pass away. and second why capture it all on film for nothing? For the Jackson's library or Mj's library? bshh.. lol
Sorry Hope Im not lashing out at you. :)

I'm definitely watching!  According to the Directv program listing, the first episode tonight is "The Jackson 5 mourns brother Michael" and the second episode tonight is "Jermaine is confronted by his brothers."

Basically It says in the opener that they announce plans for a 40th anniversery album, but the death of Michael ends their dream.

Then the second one says along the lines of them mourning for Michael.

Now correct me if I am wrong, but I didnt know they were in the middle of making these 6 episodes before MJ "died"
If that was the case why did they not cancel the show after he "passed" Why go on with it to show how they mourned?
Im sorry it just doesnt make sense to me..

Take good notes, folks.  I can already tell it's going to be very interesting...!!
 
So far, they mentioned TMZ reporting on their tour, talked about how the media gets between them and the fans, and mentioned michael getting the cuffs put on him on CNN.  

In their opening statement Jackie also wore an abercrombie shirt with a 77 on it.  

They have also mentioned their frustration with tabloids several times...

Someone said "This is it" when they walked into 2300 Jackson Street.  As an aside, on LKL a few nights ago, they could not recall which of them went on that trip back to their childhood home.

Even with the small, possibly blatant clues (IE: Bahrain/Ireland shirts etc..) this is still incredibly hard to watch.

I agree completely.

You can tell that the brothers are trying to help others understand the context of why their dad felt he needed to be hard on them.   Gary, IN is a rough place, and their dad was trying to save them from the streets, and disciplined them in the way he knew how.  It seems that the brothers see that now that they are older.

The 4 brothers are havivng a discussion about not getting along well and how it's affecting their kids.  Jermaine just said something about "breathing".  It was very similar to the closing of TII.

Tito (I think) has worn 2 shirts that are identical with the exception of the color.  One is pink and one is black.  They are Polo shirts with the number 4 prominently embroidered three (maybe more) places on the shirt.

They're showing Jermaine's announcement and reaction from around the world.  They also played a portion of the 911 call.  They played parts of Gone Too Soon and then put a memorial statement on the screen.

I sure hope that someone slips up very soon because my stomach is getting upset.  This is difficult to watch.  They're speaking about how they found out.

Yes, it is very painful to watch.  There wsa a moment that I thought that  a portion of it was scripted but I'm not so sure now.

They just showed a TMZ camera asking them about the will.
