The co-executors of Michael Jackson’s estate said the Discovery Channel has heeded their request that they cancel a show purporting to re-enact the dead superstar’s post-mortem.
John Branca and John McClain said in a statement that the company made the correct decision in choosing to cancel what they called an exploitative programme.
The co-executors harshly criticised the company for its plans to broadcast the show earlier this week.
But they say reaction from fans also played a part in the programme’s cancellation.
The company’s decision was first reported by celebrity website TMZ.com.
