Listen. Lifetime is trolling us and they are enjoying every minute of it.
The network responsible for the Aaliyah, Britney Spears and Whitney Houston biopics is now venturing into the Michael Jackson story — and they’re using MJ imposter Navi to front the project. Here’s how Lifetime describes the made-for-TV movie:
Told through the eyes of the King of Pop’s trusted bodyguards, Bill Whitfield (Chad Coleman) and Javon Beard (Sam Adegoke), the movie will reveal firsthand the devotion Michael (Navi) had to his children, and the hidden drama that took place during the last two years of his life. Suzanne de Passe, Madison Jones and Robert Teitel executive produce with Dianne Houston directing from a script by Elizabeth Hunter.
