More Jackson Set for TV

Fox to screen Michael’s home movies

Should this winter’s Living With Michael Jackson have
failed to sate the appetite of inquiring minds about the private
life of the King of Pop, Fox will serve up two hours of
never-before-seen footage of Jackson on April 24th as the
tentatively-titled “Michael Jackson’s Private Home Movies.”

While Jackson’s latest album, last year’s Invincible,
failed to attract much interest, 27.1 million people tuned into
Living when it aired on February 6th. Jackson, who will
offer a new interview for the show, maintains that Martin Bashir,
Living‘s director, took advantage of him, and portrayed
him in an unfavorable light. Jackson quickly produced his own show,
The Michael Jackson Interview: The Footage You Were Never Meant
to See
, where his own cameramen caught Bashir praising Jackson
as a parent; the show pulled in 14 million viewers.

With sweeps week approaching, Fox is looking to again tap the
newfound interest in Jackson, having culled the program from
thousands of hours of footage from Jackson’s home movie
collection.
