Channel 10 have scored the rights to Leaving Neverland, the two part HBO documentary focusing on Michael Jackson and the experiences of some of the young boys who were befriended by the pop icon.
In this insightful two-part television event, Leaving Neverland details the story of two boys, Brisbane born Wade Robson and James Safechuck, who began their long-running relationships with hit-maker Michael Jackson at the height of his stardom.
Now in their 30s, they recount their alleged stories of how they were sexually abused by the pop icon, and how they came to terms with it years later.
Described by Michael Jackson’s estate as one-sided and sensationalist, this controversial and confronting documentary shines a light on the dark and disturbing events that allegedly took place over a number of years at Michael Jackson’s famed Neverland ranch.
Leaving Neverland is a HBO commissioned documentary in conjunction with British film maker Dan Reed (The Valley, Terror In Mumbai, Three Days Of Terror: The Charlie Hedbo Attacks, The Paedophile Hunter) and Channel 4 UK.
The two doco will air on Friday, 8 March at 9.00pm and Saturday, 9 March at 9.30pm on 10.
