Discovery postpones Jackson’s autopsy showJanuary 2nd, 2011 - 3:34 pm ICT by IANS
London, Jan 2 (IANS) Discovery channel has scrapped plans to broadcast the re-enactment of Michael Jackson’s autopsy after the late popstar’s estate executors’ appealed against this.”Given the commencement of legal proceedings beginning next week, and at the request of Michael Jackson’s estate, the scheduled broadcast of the medical documentary related to Michael Jackson’s official autopsy has been postponed indefinitely,” contactmusic.com quoted the channel as saying in a statement.
The show was a fictional account of Jackson’s autopsy, and print ads promoting it outraged the singer’s estate executors. Jackson died in June 2009.
Co-executors John Branca and John McClain had sent a letter to Discovery boss David Zaslav urging him to pull the programme out of decency.
