Showtime has set a February 5 airdate for Michael Jackson’s Journey From Motown To Off The Wall, the latest documentary film on the pop star from Spike Lee. The TV bow comes after the pic has its world premiere January 24 in the Premieres section of the Sundance Film Festival.
Sony Music and Jackson’s estate are combining to rerelease Off The Wall with a DVD of the movie on February 26.
The docu, Lee’s follow-up to his Jackson pic Bad 25, centers on the singer as he is catapulted by the success of his first major solo project, the 1979 album Off the Wall, from child star to King of Pop. This film explores the seminal album, with archival footage and interviews.
Lee, John Branca and John McClain produced.
