MSNBC will air a documentary about Conrad Murray this Thursday that features an interview with the doctor who was convicted Monday of involuntary manslaughter. The interview for Michael Jackson and The Doctor: A Fatal Friendship was conducted in November 2009, prior to Murray being charged.
October Films, which produced the documentary, filmed Murray throughout the subsequent two years and continued to record him during the trial.
UK Broadcaster Steve Hewlett conducted the interview with Murray. Zodiak Rights, the international division of Zodiak Media Group, has pre-sold the program to major broadcasters around the world.
NBC has the rights to use limited excerpts of the documentary for Dateline and The Today Show. NBC recorded its own interview with Murray that was arranged by Zodiac.
