Leaving Neverland: Dan Reed’s Docu of Michael Jackson’s Sexual Abuse to Air on HBO, after Sundance Fest

Dan Reed’s Eagerly awaited Michael Jackson documentary, Leaving Neverland, world premieres at the 2019 Sundance Film Fest, in late January.

The promised to be explosive docu will be broadcast in the spring at HBO and Channel 4.

The four-hour-long project was a late addition to the festival, which only announced its inclusion yesterday afternoon.

The cables co-produced the documentary from the award-winning filmmaker behind HBO’s Terror series.

It will be shown in a pair of two-hour segments, not one four-hour feature.

The project centers on “two men who recount their experiences of being sexually abused by Michael Jackson.”

The Estate of Michael Jackson released a statement that protested: “This is yet another lurid production in an outrageous and pathetic attempt to exploit and cash in on Michael Jackson. This so-called ‘documentary’ is just another rehash of dated and discredited allegations. It’s baffling why any credible filmmaker would involve himself with this project.”
