Spike Lee’s Bad 25 will air on ABC Nationwide Thanksgiving Day
Following its Venice Film Festival and Toronto International Film Festival screenings, Spike Lee’s Michael Jackson documentary, made in collaboration with the estate of Michael Jackson and Sony Music, titled Bad 25, is already scheduled to air on ABC on Thanksgiving Day, in November.
However, before that, as reported this morning, the feature documentary will be released theatrically for 1 week, beginning October 19, but, unfortunately, only in New York, and Los Angeles.
If you live in the area here is where you can check it out in theaters early.
New York: Oct. 19 to 26 at AMC Loews Theater; 66 Third Ave.
Los Angeles: Oct. 26 to Nov. 2 at Chinese 6 Theaters; 6801 Hollywood Blvd.
The rest of the USA will have to wait about another month, to see it on ABC on Thanksgiving night (November 22).
Bad 25 shares fresh insights into the King of Pop’s creative vision that resulted in his landmark Bad album, marking its 25th anniversary this year.
“This will be a very special Thanksgiving for all families to enjoy the genius of Michael Jackson… Big thanks to ABC for allowing people to witness the making of Michael Jackson’s ‘BAD’ album. Shamon,” said Spike Lee in a statement.
The film promises rare and never-before-seen footage, and the first ever in-depth, behind-the-scenes film project to chronicle a Michael Jackson album and tour.
Included will be numerous interviews conducted by Spike Lee, including Jackson’s confidants, choreographers, musicians and collaborators.
This better be good Spike, you can’t fawk around with “The King Of Pop”. That said, we will be glued to the TV with “the itis” Thanksgiving night!
