Dr. Conrad Murray is hoping to cash in on his notoriety – sources claim he’s pitching a TV documentary about his late patient Michael Jackson’s death.
Murray stands accused of administering the fatal dose of anesthetic Propofol which cost Michael his life on June 25, 2009. He has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter.
Reportedly, Conrad Murray has taken up negotiations to cash in on his side of the story by selling the documentary to a major TV network once a verdict has been reached.
According to the New York Post, Murray has been filming interviews for the project throughout the trial and the documentary will come as a package deal, with the winning network also receiving the first post-trial interview with Dr. Murray.
A source says, “A news division that pays for the documentary will end up with a side deal of getting the sit-down with Conrad. It’s crafted in such a way for a news division that doesn’t pay for interviews… They have already filmed a long interview in case he’s taken into custody.”
A representative for CNN confirms such a project is in the works, but the network has “passed on it”.
