The much-anticipated reality show following the Jackson family will premiere Dec. 13 on A&E, the network announced today. The Jacksons: A Family Dynasty will kick-off with back-to-back hour episodes starting at 9 p.m. “This deeply intimate portrait will provide viewers with a raw and honest look inside a musical dynasty,” said Robert Sharenow, A&E and Bio Channel vice president.
The miniseries centers on brothers Jackie, Jermaine, Tito and Marlon Jackson as they prepare to reunite for a concert tour and cope with the loss of youngest brother Michael Jackson.
A&E originally announced The Jacksons as a documentary special in May, before Michael’s death.
It is unknown whether the King of Pop or his children, Paris, Prince Michael and Prince Michael II (Blanket), will be seen in the shows.
The network said the miniseries will last for six episodes.
