LOS ANGELES, CA (August 4, 2015) – Lifetime’s all-new docuseries The Jacksons: Next Generation (#JacksonsNextGen) focuses on the third generation of the famed Jackson family -- Taj, Taryll and TJ -- Tito Jackson’s sons and nephews of the famed Jackson 5. Premiering Friday, October 2, at 10PM ET/PT, the series features the brothers as they work to balance a career and their lives as traditional family men while living up to the pressures and demands that comes with their last name.
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.
3T consists of:
TJ – With four children of his own, including a newborn son, TJ is also the legal co-guardian of his Uncle Michael’s kids, Prince, Paris and Blanket. It is a role he cherishes, but a role that is coming to define his life. Whether it’s negotiating contracts, working on music, or changing diapers, this family man’s plate is always full.
Taryll -- Constantly struggling to find a balance between his intense passion for music and taking the needed time to enjoy life around him, Taryll is a father to two boys and has a very complicated relationship with their mother. Approaching “The Big 4-0,” Taryll is on a mission to get control of his life.
Taj -- The eldest brother’s background is rooted in music. Taj fell in love with filmmaking while studying with his Uncle Michael. As he pursues both his career with 3T and movie directing, Taj is always standing up for his family’s legacy against the barrage of fake tabloid stories and insane comments made on social media.
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. The series consists of six episodes.
