Among the announcements made during Lifetime network’s TCA tour presentation in January was the green-lighting of a film based on the last few years of Michael Jackson’s life, titled “Michael Jackson: Searching for Neverland,” a story that will be told through the eyes of his bodyguards, Bill Whitfield and Javon Beard, and will also touch on his being a father to sons Prince and Blanket, and daughter Paris.

In the telepic, Jackson is played by Navi, considered the world’s most prominent Michael Jackson impersonator. Meanwhile, Chad L. Coleman plays Bill Whitefield and Sam Adegoke is Javon Beard.

The project is based on the book “Remember the Time: Protecting Michael Jackson in His Final Days,” written by Motown head Berry Gordy.

Elizabeth Hunter wrote the script, and Dianne Houston is directing the film.

Suzanne de Passe is executive producer.

Lifetime has set a Memorial Day premiere for the film, and has released a first full trailer which you can watch below.
