We study general mathematical properties of a new generator of continuous distributions with three extra shape parameters called the beta Marshall-Olkin family. We present some special models and investigate the asymptotes and shapes. The new density function can be expressed as a mixture of exponentiated densities based on the same baseline distribution. We derive a power series for its quantile function. Explicit expressions for the ordinary and incomplete moments, quantile and generating

We discuss the estimation of the model parameters by maximum likelihood and illustrate the flexibility of the family by means of two applications to real data.
