Jason Freeman, a California-based oil-rig worker and MMA cage fighter, is set to star in Sins of the Father, a new reality-TV show based on Freeman’s status as the grandson of notorious hippie cult murder madman/mastermind Charles Manson.

Manson himself is reported to also be appearing in the series from behind bars.

Gil Formats, an Israel-based production company, debuted a teaser video for the program at MIPTV, a global gathering of TV syndicators and distributors in Cannes. In one clip, Freeman asks, “Am I doomed for life? Is there bad blood in me?”

Later on, Freeman is shown coming from jail, where he’s just spoken to his granddad. He says, “No matter what, he is family.”

Freeman’s own father, Charles Manson, Jr., committed suicide in 1993, shooting himself in the head on a stretch of desolate highway. According to Freeman, “He just couldn’t let it go. He just couldn’t live it down. He couldn’t live down who his father was.”

It is unknown if Manson’s other alleged offspring will be involved in Sins. Among them is Los Angeles musician Matthew Roberts, who believes he is Charles Manson’s son by way of a pregnancy that occurred after a Manson Family orgy.

A spokeswoman for Gil Formats did indicate, however, that the children of other infamous criminals will appear on the show, and that on some episodes, “they will confront their parents.”

No word yet on when when Sins of the Father might debut. But you can bet Charlie will be watching. Will you?
