Michael Jackson left such a vivid mark on modern popular culture that the history of his ups and downs continues to excite the minds and hearts of artists. It became known this spring that Starburns Industries is preparing an animated film about the famous musician's domestic chimpanzee, and now Warner Bros. Television enlisted the support of JJ Abrams (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Lost ) director and producer for the miniseries about the last months of the life of the king of pop.|
According to The Hollywood Reporter , the plot of the drama will be based on the book by popular American TV presenter and writer Tavis Smiley " Before You Judge Me: The Triumph and Tragedy of Michael Jackson's Last Days " , which will go to press this week. The literary work will chronicle the last four months of the singer's life, during which Jackson changed the management team several times, fought and reconciled with his family members, tried to fight depression and addictions in order to restart his career and present the world with the greatest musical show in history.
Abrams will not only act as a producer of the miniseries, but will also involve his company Bad Robot Productions in its creation. It is expected that WB Television will start offering biopics to the heads of on-air and cable channels in the very near future.
For Abrams and Smiley , the TV adaptation of the book about Jackson will be the second joint project: last year it became known that they will join forces in the work on the series about the last year of the life of Martin Luther King.
