the jacksons: a family dynasty (gets paid)
December 13, 2009 MICHAEL KNUDSEN

i told myself i wasn’t going to watch the jacksons: a family dynasty – the new reality show kicking off tonight on A&E – focusing on four of the jackson brothers: marlon, tito, jermaine, and jackie (who are prepping for an unnecessary reunion of the jackson 5) but now i think i’m going to tune in – i can’t pass up a train wreck – curiosity’s got a tight grip on me! sadly this series seems to be totally trying to capitalize on the increased interest in the jacksons simply because of michael jackson‘s untimely passing this past june (i guess strike while the iron’s hot?) i’m curious to see how many times they will mention him – i’m betting a whole lot! maybe i’ll change my jaded opinion after i see the show because right now all i can see is dollar $igns in their eyes – sad but true! i highly doubt michael would have partaken in any part of this show if he were still alive! popbytes over & out for now … xoxo

Behind the headlines lies a captivating family, whose lives have been unwillingly played out before cameras for decades. After 40 years in the business together, Jackie, Jermaine, Tito and Marlon, have sold more than 250 million albums worldwide. Now, the brothers allow unprecedented access into their world as they record new material and rehearse for the 40th anniversary celebration of The Jackson Five. The Jacksons: A Family Dynasty will chronicle the brothers’ relationships with each other, their parents and their children, while also balancing the demands of their professional commitments and celebrity. The series will also document the brothers’ coming to terms with Michael’s tragic loss and how to properly honor his legacy.
