The younger generation of Jacksons are stepping into the spotlight.
Lifetime has ordered the docu-series "The Jacksons: Next Generation," a reality series focused on three siblings from the famous musical family. The show will follow the sons of Tito Jackson-- TJ, Taj and Taryll-- and feature appearances by Michael Jackson's kids-- Prince, Paris and Blanket.
From Entertainment Weekly:
"Episodes will delve into the professional and personal lives of: TJ, the 34-year-old father of four and the legal co-guardian of his uncle Michael’s kids, Prince, Paris and Blanket; Taryll, the 39-year-old father of two with a “very complicated” relationship with his sons’ mother; and the 41-year-old Taj, who is pursuing careers in music and film directing when he’s not defending the family name. The Jacksons: Next Generation will show these siblings raising their children, coping with the stresses of being a Jackson (which includes dealing with “the constant rumors, stalkers, and frauds who all want a piece of anything and anyone related to the family’s legacy,” according to the network), and performing with their R&B group 3T, whose 1995 debut album Brotherhood went triple platinum."
"The Jacksons: Next Generation" will premiere Oct. 2 on Lifetime.
