Discovery Acquires Rights to ‘Killing Michael Jackson’ Documentary About Singer’s Relationship With Dr. Conrad Murray

Discovery International has acquired rights to ‘Killing Michael Jackson,’ a documentary from U.K based Zig Zag Productions. 

According to a Hollywood Reporter exclusive, Discovery will run the documentary on its channels in Italy, Germany, the Nordics and on Quest Red in the U.K. 

‘Killing Michael Jackson’ explores the pop icon’s relationship with Doctor Conrad Murray, who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in connection to Jackson’s death, revealing  “fresh perspectives and exclusive audiotaped interviews with both Murray and witnesses.”

With the tenth anniversary of the death of Michael Jackson approaching, the hour-long documentary “promises” to re-examine the case with the help of three of the original Los Angeles based investigators, Orlando Martinez, Dan Myers, and Scott Smith.

“We are delighted that this documentary has been picked up in territories across the world,” said Matt Graff, managing director of Zig Zag Productions. “This film focuses on the intriguing circumstances surrounding Michael Jackson’s death giving audiences a fascinating insight into the final moments of the pop star’s life and the criminal process that lead to the arrest and conviction of Dr. Conrad Murray.”
