HBO will premiere the controversial two-part Michael Jackson documentary, “Leaving Neverland,” on Sunday, March 3, and Monday, March 4.
The Dan Reed directed film, which made its world premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, is a four-hour exposé in which two men, Wade Robson and James Safechuck, allege that the iconic singer sexually abused them when they were children.
HBO is sticking with its decision to release the film in the face of criticism from the late pop singer’s estate.
“It doesn’t change our plans,” HBO programming president Casey Bloys told Variety. “We announced the air date. It will air as planned.”
