Members of Michael Jackson's extended family are set to become the stars of a new reality TV show. The six-episode series is due to premiere on America's Reelz cable channel in November (14) and will focus on the ex-wife of Jackson's brothers Jermaine and Randy, Alejandra Jackson, and her children. Alejandra and her family moved out of the Jackson family home in Encino, California following the Thriller superstar's death in 2009 and they suggest the new show will examine the reasons behind their move. Speaking to reporters at the summer TV critics' tour in America, Alejandra's daughter Genevieve said, "We didn't want it to happen that way... We were very sheltered. There's a lot of outside people coming in and out of our house. We had to watch what we said." Son Donte says of the move, "Some of the politics came into play." Alejandra was originally married to Randy Jackson, who is father to Genevieve and Randy Jr., but later married his brother Jermaine and gave birth to another two sons - Jaafar and Jermajesty. She has also raised Donte since the age of two after he was adopted by her former father and mother-in-law, Joe and Katherine Jackson.
