The Jacksons: An American Dream

When the story of the Jackson family was ready to be brought to the small screen, producers of the miniseries realized they needed more than just two hours to tell the whole story. Based on Katherine Jackson’s autobiography My Family, The Jacksons: An American Dream focused on one of the most successful musical families in history and the massive success of the group The Jackson 5. With an all-star cast that included Vanessa Williams, Holly Robinson Peete, Billy Dee Williams, Angela Bassett and Terrence Howard, the miniseries remains one of the most popular musical biopics of all time.
