This March, A&E Home Entertainment gives home viewers an all-access pass into the lives of America’s most news-worthy family with THE JACKSONS: A FAMILY DYNASTY. Straight from the tabloids to the television, this intimate docu-series — seen by over 4.2MM viewers on its debut night — chronicles the turbulent personal and professional lives of the Jackson brothers as they reunite in the aftermath of the passing of their beloved brother, Michael.
Public interest in the family has never been higher and on March 30, consumers will have the opportunity to know the Jacksons like never before with this six-hour glimpse into the “First Family of American Music” with a must-have addition to every music fan’s home entertainment library. You Only Think You Know Them At the height of their celebrity in the ‘70s, the Jacksons – hailing from Gary, Indiana – had a hit primetime variety show, a Saturday morning animated series and made music history when their first four singles catapulted to #1. And after 40 years in the business together, they’ve sold more than 250 million albums worldwide. Prior to Michael’s untimely death, the brothers – Jackie, Jermaine, Tito and Marlon — were planning on celebrating their 40th anniversary with the “rebirth” of the Jackson Five and a small concert. But both the preparation and performance became extremely emotional as family members and longtime friends came out to show their support in the wake of their unexpected family tragedy.
Primarily shot “in the moment,” as they recorded new material and rehearsed for the anniversary concert, THE JACKSONS: A FAMILY DYNASTY is an unprecedented chronicle of the brothers’ relationships with each other, their parents and their children, while illustrating the difficult-to-balance demands of their professional commitments and celebrity. Including some documentary elements to illuminate key moments of the Jackson’s legendary history, the program goes behind the headlines to spend some quality time with a captivating family, whose lives – for better and worse — have been unwillingly played out before cameras for decades.
