Billboard Magazine reports:
HBO isn’t backing down on its Michael Jackson doc, Leaving Neverland. Amid an unsubstantiated report that the network might not air the controversial doc due to threats from Jackson’s estate lawyer Howard Weitzman, HBO has set a premiere date for the film.
The first part of the four hour film will air on Sunday, March 3, with the second part following on Monday, March 4.
From the Television Critics Association press tour stage, HBO’s executive VP of corporate communications called the documentary “incredibly powerful.” The film follows two adult accusers — Wade Robson and James Safechuck — as they recount their abuse by the pop icon.
