Fanboy godhead J.J. Abrams is producing a television series looking at Michael Jackson‘s final days (which means it probably won’t be addressing this grotesque stuff). The show, which is based on Tavis Smiley‘s book Before You Judge Me: The Triumph and Tragedy of Michael Jackson’s Last Days (out June 21), will zero in on the last 16 weeks of the King Of Pop’s life, according to The Fader.

Variety reports that Abrams and Smiley will serve as executive producers. No network or timeline has been revealed yet.

Jackson died of a propofol overdose at age 50 in 2009. His personal physician, Conrad Murray, was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in 2011 for his role in the death.
