It is set to air next week
A new trailer for ABC’s forthcoming Michael Jackson documentary has been unveiled.
The two hour film, The Last Days Of Michael Jackson, features never-before-seen interviews with the late singer.
The documentary traces Jackson’s rise to success, growing up in Gary, Indiana, and his Jackson 5 days through to his comeback concerts and his death. You can watch the trailer below.
It opens with a montage of Jackson’s fast-paced life, with footage of him onstage and being hounded by paparazzi.
The clip includes his sister Janet Jackson reflecting on the loss of her brother. Others in his inner circle also discuss the drugs that were administered to the singer leading up to his final days.
The documentary airs on ABC on May 24.
Meanwhile, the original shoes worn by the singer during his first-ever moonwalk are set to be auctioned.
The auction will take place on May 26, ahead of what would have been the late singer’s 60th birthday on August 29.
Several other pieces of memorabilia will also go on sale, along with Jackson’s black Florsheim loafers that were present during the debut of Jackson’s iconic signature move.
The original moonwalk was first seen in 1983 during his ‘Billie Jean’ performance at NBC’s 25th anniversary of Motown special.
