PostSubject: Discovery Channel to show Michael's Autopsy UPDATED   Wed Dec 29, 2010 2:40 pm

Discovery Channel has announced it will air a special documentary in January 2011 called “Michael Jackson’s Autopsy: What Really Killed Michael Jackson,” in which they will re-enact the singer’s autopsy based on court documents and witnesses.

According to the network, which, apparently, is behind the project with Oprah’s OWN network, the show will aim to offer an insight into how the autopsy on the late King of Pop was conducted and, of course, into how he died in the summer of 2009.


Fans are now struggling to stop Discovery from airing the show, calling it an “affront to human dignity,” and asking everyone to leave Michael alone – some things are not meant to be shown on TV, TMZ reports.

A petition is already making the rounds in the MJ fan community, which will hopefully determine the big bosses at the two networks to reconsider airing the show.

“Fans have already collected nearly 1,500 signatures – all demanding the network pull the plug on a special entitled ‘Michael Jackson's Autopsy’ in which MJ’s bloody autopsy is expected to be reenacted in gory detail,” TMZ notes.

Indeed, as one fan has learned, for the gruesome show, producers have used an “anatomically correct synthetic cadaver” in order to re-enact the autopsy.

“The fans behind the petition call the documentary ‘an affront to human dignity’ – adding, ‘This type of sensational and unscrupulous reporting can only cause harm’,” TMZ goes on to say.

“We ask the directors of the Discovery Channel programming to proceed with the outright cancellation of this indecent documentary,” reads the petition.

There could be more to this documentary than just an obvious quest for ratings through sensationalism of the lowest class, fans believe.

Oprah’s network, which launches in the first days of the next year, is co-owned by Harpo Inc. and Discovery, which means Oprah is partly behind the show.

Fans believe the Queen of Television has had it in for Michael ever since his troubled days on trial – and not even his acquittal made the grudge go away.

UPDATE:

The Discovery television network said Friday it has cancelled plans to air a program that claims to be a medical documentary re-enacting the autopsy performed on Michael Jackson.

Michael Jackson's Autopsy: What Really Killed Michael Jackson was set to air in Britain and several western European countries on Jan. 13.

But Discovery Networks International announced the cancellation in a statement.

"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," it said, referring to the preliminary hearing of Dr. Conrad Murray, who has been charged in Jackson's death.

More than 9,000 of the late singer's fans around the world protested the program in an online petition launched earlier this month.

"We ask the directors of the Discovery Channel programming to proceed with the outright cancellation of this indecent documentary," the petition read.

As well, the executors of Jackson's estate sent a letter to Discovery CEO David Zaslav urging him to cancel the fictitious account of what the autopsy might have been like.

"Your decision to even schedule this program is in shockingly bad taste and insensitive to Michael's family," wrote co-executors John Branca and John McClain.

An advertisement for the program depicted a body covered by a sheet. One hand, wearing a sequined glove — a Jackson trademark — is visible.

"Discovery obviously views this as clever advertising and creative 'branding' for its program," Branca and McClain wrote.

The program had not been scheduled in Canada or the U.S.
