Spike Lee’s Michael Jackson Documentary Will Air on ABC
We previously reported on Spike Lee’s new gig, a documentary about Michael Jackson titled Bad25, and it turns out that ABC has acquired the television rights to the documentary, according to an official announcement on Tuesday. Spike Lee stated:
“This will be a very special Thanksgiving for all families to enjoy the genius of Michael Jackson. Big thanks to ABC for allowing people to witness the making of Michael Jackson’s Bad album.”
Lee linked arms with Michael Jackson’s estate and Legacy/Epic Records to search the artist’s never-before-seen footage stored in their archives. He conducted interviews with some of Jackson’s closest friends, collaborators, musicians, and choreographers. Among the big names interviewed are Mariah Carey, Kanye West, Martin Scorsese, Sheryl Crow, and L.A. Reid.
Bad25 is scheduled to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, and the public can enjoy the documentary on Thanksgiving 2012. As planned to commemorate the anniversary, Bad25 will be released in a deluxe package featuring three CDs, two collectible booklets, and the first-ever authorized DVD release of a concert from Michael Jackson’s record-breaking Bad tour. It’s available for pre-order at Amazon.com today, and it will hit stores on September 18.
