Playing Get Your First Look at Lifetime's 'The Jacksons: Next Generation'

If you ever wanted to know what it's like to be a part of the famous Jackson family, here's your chance.

Tito Jackson's three sons TJ, 37, Taj, 42, and Taryll, 40, are opening up their family to reality show cameras for Lifetime's docuseries The Jacksons: Next Generation, debuting Oct. 2, and ET has a first look.

While their father became famous as part of The Jackson 5 with brothers Michael, Jackie, Marlon and Jermaine, TJ, Taj and Taryll have mostly kept their private lives out of the public eye -- until now.

"First it was really hard because we are so private," Taj told ET. "There's certain things that you see and then we're like, 'No, you can't show that!' But then that's what keeps it real."

In addition to Tito's three sons, the late Michael Jackson's three children Prince, Paris and Blanket will also appear in the series.

"We opened it up to everyone -- to whoever wanted to participate," Taj said. "That was the way we did it because it's kind of their story as well."

The show will primarily deal with the professional and personal lives of Taryll, Taj and TJ, who is the legal co-guardian of Prince, Paris and Blanket, as they navigate through the obstacles of being a Jackson while trying to defend their family name and perform with their R&B group 3T, whose debut album, 1995's Brotherhood, went triple platinum.
