The Jacksons: An American Dream (1992)

Not all celebrity biopics need to be on the silver screen in order to garner massive attention, and this one proved just that. The film was broken into two halves and aired on ABC in the form of a miniseries. There was so much that needed to be told that producers decided that they needed more than the standard two hours, eventually upping the run-time to four hours. The all-star cast included Vanessa Williams, Holly Robinson Peete, Billy Dee Williams, Angela Bassett and Terrence Howard.
