Watch the trailer for Lifetime’s new Michael Jackson biopic

Lifetime have shared the first official trailer for ‘Searching For Neverland’, their adaptation of a book written by Michael Jackson’s bodyguards, Bill Whitfield and Javon Beard starring famed Jackson impersonator Navi and The Walking Dead‘s Chad L. Coleman as Whitfield.

Their book, Remember The Time: Protecting Michael Jackson In His Final Days, detailed the final years of Jackson’s life, falling back into seclusion in the wake of his 2005 sexual molestation trial, up until his 2009 death of an overdose.

Lifetime pride themselves on their ham fisted celebrity biopics and this is no different; it appears to be told from the perspective of the bodyguards, who loyally stayed by the singer’s side throughout the controversy the plagued his last years.

It’s slated to premiere at the end of the month, cast your eyes over the trailer below.
