Additionally, viewers will get a first-hand account of the role Jackson’s father played in building his character and his desire for the public to get to know the real DeSean Jackson.

DeSean Jackson: 3-Time NFL Pro Bowler and star wide receiver, is a Los Angeles native preparing for success on the field and has been in the spotlight his entire life. From being a prodigy at the football powerhouse Long Beach Poly High School, to being the first player in history to be selected to the exclusive Pro Bowl at two different positions in the same year (return specialist and wide receiver), DeSean is making his career one for the record books both on and off the field. In 2008, DeSean was drafted by the NFL Philadelphia Eagles. With an amazing season, he set the record for receiving yards for a rookie at 912, and led the team in receptions with 62. In 2014, he parted ways with the Eagles as he signed and continues to play with the Washington Redskins.

DeSean has done it all from commercials to the big screen with his documentary DeSean Jackson: The Making of a Father’s Dream, to a guest host on The View and BET’s 106 & Park to the ESPY’s Red Carpet Correspondent for Young Hollywood. There is nothing this young star can’t do. Off the field, DeSean’s passion and ambition to not only build his brand but also give back to the community, has enabled him to create an empire for himself. With countless magazine features, a unique star power on camera and an undeniable talent in the recording studio, DeSean is truly the epitome of the modern day Super Star. Couple all of this with his legendary play on the field, it is no doubt that DeSean Jackson will continue to shine and dazzle as an icon and a role model for many years to come.

Gayle “The Momager”: Gayle has worked for more than 45+ years in Corporate America in an array of interesting positions such as 35+ years in the legal industry. She is also a 15+ year veteran of the music industry who worked in legal, product development & marketing and A&R departments. Gayle is a force to be reckoned with and advises DeSean in life and career matters. She is very involved in every aspect of DeSean’s life and wants him to live a positive and fulfilling life. That means #1 – a satisfying career in the NFL and to leave a long-lasting legacy for his future children.

A’Dreea “The A-sis-tant”: Older sister, A’Dreea, is his assistant – but also helps Gayle manage DeSean and steer his life and career. She assists DeSean with his finances and is committed to keeping his spending under control – a near impossible task. She joins Gayle in making sure DeSean stays on the right path and not allowing his wealth and new independence take him down the wrong path in life. A’Dreea has two children – Jaiden & Kameron – 7 & 9 years old – and is facing some personal challenges of her own. She does not know what the future will bring her and much is at stake over the next few months.

Byron Jackson: Byron Jackson’s passion for film making and football go hand in hand. The talented wide receiver earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Radio, Television & Film in 1993 from San Jose State University. Upon graduation, his great play led him to sign an NFL contract with the Kansas City Chiefs. He also played in the Canadian Football League before ending his career in the World League of American Football. While playing professional football, Jackson devoted much of his free time to training his younger brother DeSean, who also had a passion for the sport. It was during this time that Byron began shooting the documentary that would chronicle his brother’s rise to the NFL.

After retiring from professional football, Byron turned to local news television. He spent many years as a sports producer for KCOP Channel 13 (now UPN channel 13) in Los Angeles, CA, acquiring a love for sharing athletes’ stories through imagery. Byron moved on to Fox Sports Net where he has held an editing position for the past 18 years. In an effort to expand his vision of intermixing sports and media, he co-founded Digital Command Post, a full-service state of the art post-production facility located in Beverly Hills, California. His entrepreneurial spirit continued to soar in 2009 when he founded SportsRhythms, LLC, a multi-media sports developmental company.
