Executors Of Michael Jackson Estate Blast NBC

Executors of Michael Jackson’s estate have blasted NBC for plans to air a documentary on the doctor convicted of killing the singer.

In a letter Wednesday to top executives of NBC and Comcast, lawyers John Branca and John McClain expressed outrage that Dr. Conrad Murray is being treated like a celebrity.

They say the documentary entitled “Michael Jackson and the Doctor: A Fatal Friendship” offers Murray a chance to smear Jackson’s reputation and blame him for his own death.

Branca and McClain demanded the network refrain from airing the program Friday night.
