Janet Jackson is an icon and anything she touches turns to gold. That’s something that executives at Lifetime and A+E Networks learned when they aired the superstar’s four-part documentary JANET JACKSON., which documented her life and times over her five-decade career. The doc was a ratings smash, so of course they want to get back in business with the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame inductee and they will in the just-announced new docuseries Janet Jackson: Family First.
Janet Jackson: Family First, which will be co-executive produced by Janet and her brother Randy Jackson, will chronicle her life as she prepares for and embarks on the upcoming Together Again Tour. (And we’re presuming that it will also include her working on that new music she promised, as well.) In addition to that, however, it will also include her working with Randy as they attempt to get the family band The Jacksons back together again.
“I was touched by the love and support from the wonderful fans who enjoyed the documentary last year,” Janet said in a press release. “I am excited to continue to share my story, and welcome fans into my life and the Together Again Tour. Thank you for your never-ending support, and I hope you enjoy the next chapter.”
Randy reflected his excitement about what’s next in his own statement, writing, “In this next chapter in the documentary, Janet and I are thrilled to welcome viewers on the road with us as we embark on the Together Again Tour, celebrating the milestone of 50 years of Janet’s career with fans across the country. We look forward to the continued partnership with Lifetime and A+E, and to sharing our family with viewers.”
The docuseries is currently shooting and no official air date has been announced as of yet. However, with the tour set to kick off next month, we’re sure that Janet Jackson will have plenty to share with her fans whenever the docuseries is simulcast on Lifetime and A+E.
