Rock & Roll Hall of Game Posted January 10, 2019 Share Posted January 10, 2019 https://deadline.com/2019/01/leaving-neverland-hbo-channel-4-following-sundance-debut-1202532676/ This comes fresh from the announcement that the controversial doc, which follows the long-standing accusations of sexual abuse against the King of Pop, will screen at the festival on January 25. Leaving Neverland, which will screen in the special events category, tells the story of two boys, now in their 30s, who say they were sexually abused by Jackson when they were ages 7 and 10. It features interviews with the two men. It is exec produced by Nancy Abraham and Lisa Heller, executive vice presidents of HBO Documentary and Family Programming, and Channel 4 Specialist Factual commissioner Tom Porter. Yesterday, following the Sundance announcement, a rep of Jackson’s estate contacted Deadline to call Leaving Neverland “just another rehash of dated and discredited allegations” against the Thriller singer.
