Michael Jackson’s personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, has a surprising new project.
Murray, who’s currently being investigated for manslaughter in the legend’s death, reportedly has a deal with a British production company to shoot documentary-style footage for a proposed TV special.
A camera crew was set to follow the controversial doctor in November as he returned to his position in Houston, reports TMZ.
A spokesman for Dr. Murray explains that the production company was “interested in the reaction of patients to his return,” and they filmed him for a day, following him from his office to even church.
But another supposed spokesperson for the doc is playing down the story.
“There is no proposed deal,” says spokeswoman Miranda Sevcik to E!. “They were thinking about doing something in the future, but it’s been blown way out of proportion.”
Murray will only receive payment for the special when and if it airs – which wouldn’t be until the Michael Jackson investigation is complete. This could take several years, according to the spokesperson.
Murray was with Jackson when he died suddenly at age 50 in June. Both Janet and LaToya Jackson have stated that they believe he played some part in their brother’s death.
