Family Legacy on MTV review: promises unheard of insight but falls short

I

n its opening montage, Family Legacy promises a completely unique and unguarded look into the lives of musical icons including Linkin Park’s late vocalist Chester Bennington, hip-hop pioneers Notorious BIG and P Diddy, hugely successful groups like TLC, N*SYNC, Backstreet Boys , Rn’B figureheads such as Brandy, and alt-rocker Melissa Etheridge .

Narrated by the children of these famous folk – who offer a unique perspective – it has the potential to offer up something truly revealing, but instead sticks to the far safer (and altogether more boring) territory of a puff piece for MTV, which was a producer on the documentary.
