Two-part documentary explores Michael Jackson sexual abuse allegations

HBO will premiere the documentary film Leaving Neverland on March 3, the network announced during its Television Critics Association winter press tour session Friday.

The four-hour documentary, which tells the story of two men who claim they were abused by pop star Michael Jackson as children, will debut as a two-part special, with part one debuting March 3 and the finale premiering on March 4, said the network.

The controversial film debuted at the Sundance Film Festival last month. The estate of Michael Jackson has bashed the documentary as “tabloid character assassination.” 

The network also announced it will premiere this Spring Running With Beto, a behind-the-scenes documentary that follows Democratic Congressman Beto O'Rourke's rise from virtual unknown to national political sensation.
