Lifetime knows the Jackson family well. In 2015, Lifetime followed the lives of The Jacksons: Next Generation which starred Tito Jackson’s son TJ Jackson, the legal guardian of the late great Michael Jackson’s three children Prince, Paris, and Blanket. So it’s no surprise that Lifetime is turning the spotlight once again on MJ’s legacy. This time, in Michael Jackson: Searching for Neverland, Michael’s life story is told through the eyes of his “trusted bodyguards” Bill Whitfield and Javon Beard who wrote “Remember the Time: Protecting Michael Jackson in His Final Days.”
In Searching for Neverland Michael Jackson is portrayed by Navi who is billed as “the world’s #1 Michael Jackson tribute artist” and was “chosen by Michael Jackson.” When Michael was alive, he would hire Navi as a decoy. And yes, Navi has been to Neverland. Michael Jackson: Searching for Neverland premieres on Lifetime on Monday, May 29 at 8pm.
