Being associated and jointly responsible, with his brothers, for the sale of more than 150 million records over a span of thirty-eight years, Mr. Jackson has successfully combined the entertainment side of his talents with the business management skills required in today's entertainment business world.

After four years of intensive research developing and fine-tuning the concept, Jackson and his partner became convinced that family values programming is the future of cable television.
