Michael Jackson’s Doctor Shopping Documentary to TV Networks; One Major Broadcast Net Is Reportedly Close to a Deal

Nov 2, 2011  •  Post A Comment

Dr. Conrad Murray, who is on trial for involuntary manslaughter of pop icon Michael Jackson, has been shopping a documentary to top television networks, with NBC possibly a buyer, reports the New York Post.

As previously reported, Murray told a judge yesterday that he won’t testify in the case, effectively wrapping up the defense case.

Murray has sold the rights to his story to a production company that has been taping interviews with the doctor as the trial has proceeded, the Post reports. The unidentified production company is reportedly seeking $1 million for the project, which includes a video diary.

The package also reportedly will give the buyer an opportunity for a sit-down interview with Murray, according to the piece.

While CNN passed on it, NBC is close to a deal, possibly for the "Today" show, the article says. NBC and a representative for Murray both declined to comment, the piece adds.
