Michael Jackson - Conrad Murray To Appear In New Documentary

Dr. Conrad Murray is to be the focus of a new documentary.

The physician - who was found guilty of the involuntary manslaughter of Michael Jackson yesterday (07.11.11) - agreed to be filmed in the lead up to his trial and reportedly reveals intimate details of the singer and his life.

The programme, entitled 'Michael Jackson and The Doctor: A Fatal Friendship', began filming in November 2009, five months after the star's death in June, and features a series of exclusive interviews with Murray.

The documentary also charts the preparations for his legal battle, including a lot of fighting between Murray's lawyers.

Distributors Zodiac Rights have already sold the rights to the documentary to "major broadcasters around the world".

According to gossip website TMZ, NBC will screen the programme in the US.

Channel 4 will broadcast the documentary in the UK

Murray is currently remanded in custody without bail until he is sentenced on November 29 and faces a maximum of four years in prison.

It has been claimed he is on suicide watch in jail and is not allowed to mix with other inmates for his own safety.

Old 'news' - I commented on this weeks ago, and NO he cannot by law gain from this and will be banned from being screened on C 4 (by rights). Judge Pastor has extra reason for 'throwing' the book at him & the Jackson family claiming every cent.

Just when you think Murray can't sink any lower, there he is again. Not only did he kill Michael, but began plans to make money off his homicide when Michael was barely laid to rest only a couple months earlier. Is there a slimier creature than Conrad Murray?
