Channel 4 will screen a documentary featuring an exclusive interview with Dr Conrad Murray, who has been found guilty of the involuntary manslaughter of Michael Jackson.
Michael Jackson and The Doctor: A Fatal Friendship reveals Dr Murray’s testimony of the events surrounding the singer’s death on June 25, 2009.
October Films, what’s it all about? productions and Zodiak Rights secured access to Dr Murray in November 2009, prior to him being charged.
They have filmed with Dr Murray throughout the intervening two years and have continued to record with him during the trial.
The film, by multi-award-winning director Tom Roberts, explores the last three months of Jackson’s life and his friendship with the doctor he handpicked to care for himself and his children.
Adam Bullmore, executive producer for October Films, said: “Made with remarkable levels of access and complete editorial independence, we believe this film is the most complete and accurate story of what really happened to Michael Jackson and Conrad Murray on 25 June 2009, and why.”
Michael Jackson and The Doctor: A Fatal Friendship will be shown on Channel 4 within the next week.
