Michael Jackson’s Estate is outraged with MSNBC for their plans to air Michael Jackson and the Doctor: A Fatal Friendship this Friday. The documentary by October Films and What’s It All About? Productions discusses the highly publicized trial from the perspective of Conrad Murray and his defense team. It is reportedly said to provide “an exclusive look into the past two years of Murray’s life.” TMZ.com has obtained an official statement from The Jackson’s Estate about the documentary.
“Like so many of Michael’s fans, the Estate is also disgusted by MSNBC’s irresponsible and inexplicable decision to air a Conrad Murray ‘documentary,’” said the Estate in a statement, obtained by TMZ.
“The Co-Executors, John Branca and John McClain, are sending a letter to the top executives at Comcast, NBC Universal and MSNBC to express their disdain for their actions.”
So far the estate’s disgust has done nothing to slow the documentary’s distribution down. The Hollywood Reporter writes that the documentary has already been pre-soled internationally with international broadcasters like England’s Channel 4 and Nine Network in Australia.
