Michael Jackson has yet to be put in the ground, but that hasn't stopped his brothers from agreeing to appear on a reality show trading on the pop star's memory.

A&E is set to air the pilot episode of Tito, Jermaine, Jackie and Marlon's show, which reportedly deals with MJ's death and troubles in the Jackson brothers' own lives, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter.

The brothers actually began filming before the Gloved One's shocking death despite failing to get their more famous sibling to sign onto the project.

A&E did not comment on the Reporter's story.

But sources close to the network said the one-hour pilot episode may air as soon as this month, with the possibility of a half hour or hour-long series to follow. 

Michael Jackson died suddenly on June 25 ahead of a planned set of reunion concerts.  

His family had planned to bury him on Aug. 29, his 51st birthday. The burial has since been postponed until the 31st, according to reports
