Watch: Trailer for Michael Jackson Biopic, “Searching for Neverland”

American cable channel Lifetime has released a new trailer for the Michael Jackson biopic, Searching for Neverland.

The biopic is based on a 2014 book by Jackson’s personal bodyguards, Bill Whitfield and Javon Beard.

Starring self-proclaimed “world’s greatest” MJ impersonator, Navi, the biopic focuses on the final years of Jackson’s life as he struggles to balance parenthood and fame.

It even touches on the events and drama after the pop star’s sudden death. The trailer shows a scene with investigators questioning the two bodyguards (played by Chad L. Coleman and Sam Adegoke) about Dr. Conrad Murray, the doctor who administered a lethal dose of propofol to Jackson.

Given Lifetime’s penchant for unauthorized biopics, like Britney Ever After, we don’t exactly have high hopes for this film.
