Michael Jackson Doc Conrad Murray Looking to Sell Story for Documentary

The prosecution and defense have rested in the trial of Dr. Conrad Murray, who is being accused of involuntary manslaughter for administering propofol to Michael Jackson. Murray’s practices were called into question by medical experts during the course of the trial, chastising him for injecting the singer with the surgical anesthetic so he could sleep. Propofol is incredibly dangerous — and obviously deadly — when used outside of closely monitored hospital settings. It’s a juicy story, and one that many newshounds want to know more about.

The New York Post reports that Muray has been quietly pitching networks to do a documentary about his story. He has reportedly sold the rights to a production company, which is filming daily interviews with Murray as the trial progresses. It’s interesting that Murray would be filming documentary interviews, even though he elected not to take the stand in his own defense during the trial.

The production company is said to be packaging the documentary to include a video diary and sit-down chat with the doctor. The unnamed company is also trying to sell the documentary for a cool million, too.

CNN was pitched on the purchase of the footage, but ultimately declined. “We are not considering, we passed on it,” a rep for the news network told the Post. So some sort of documentary and footage is being assembled. ‘Today’ is also rumored as a likely outlet that would desire the content.

Murray’s lawyer could not comment on this alleged documentary or its existence, due to a gag order that restricts the case.
