The trailer for Lifetime's Michael Jackson biopic is here, and it looks creepy and awful

Searching for Neverland Lifetime finalLifetime‘Michael Jackson: Searching for Neverland.’

The final years of Michael Jackson’s life have been put into a Lifetime movie, and it’s not pretty.

“Michael Jackson: Searching for Neverland” is based on the 2014 book “Remember the Time: Protecting Michael Jackson in His Final Days,” by the King of Pop’s bodyguards. It looks exactly like what you would imagine a movie on the legend would be like if it got the Lifetime treatment.

We get a cheesy portrayal of Jackson, played by noted Jackson impersonator Navi, at a low point in his life as he races from paparazzi and tries to be a father to his kids at his palatial Neverland Ranch.

Lifetime has made an infamous habit of looking back on music stars’ lives and scandals with unauthorised biographies. Past titles include the truly heinous “Britney Ever After” on Britney Spears and “Aaliyah: Princess of R&B” on the late Aaliyah.

Watch the trailer below. The movie airs May 29.
