The Jacksons are at odds over the inclusion of Michael Jackson's three children in an upcoming A&E reality show about the famous family, Us Weekly reports in its latest issue (on newsstands now).

A source tells Us Weekly the buzzed-about program will include Michael's kids -- Prince, 12, Paris, 11, and Blanket, 7 -- though not everyone's happy about it.

Eldest sister Rebbie, 59, who has refused to be in the series (called The Jacksons: A Family Dynasty, tentatively set to air in December), "feels Michael would spin in his grave if he knew his kids would be on this show."

While Janet, 43, is on board, mom Katherine "is just going along with things," the source continues.

Still, one of the creators of the program -- which will be either five one-hour episodes or 10 half-hour episodes -- says the family shines on the series.

"We have 23 cast members with the last name Jackson," executive producer Jodi Gomes tells Us Weekly. "They've done a great job opening up about losing a brother." (A Jackson family rep couldn't be reached.)
