Casey Bloys of HBO was forced to speak out about rumors that the cable network was going to edit the Michael Jackson documentary LEAVING NEVERLAND..
The WRAP reporting:
“There is no hesitation, there are no plans to not air it,” Bloys told TheWrap this afternoon.
“All I ask of this is that people watch it and judge for themselves,” Bloys said of the film. “I think you will see a very powerful, very moving, disturbing documentary. Once people see it, they can decide for themselves.”
“We’re not dealing with any legal issues or concerns,” Bloys answered when we asked about such possible ramifications. “It’s going to air and we have not edited it.”
And, yes, the documentary has passed muster with Bloys’ legal department.
“We have a very, very experienced legal team,” he told us. “This has been vetted.”
“Leaving Neverland” will premiere on Sunday, March 3, as HBO announced
