Discovery has acquired the rights to documentary 'Killing Michael Jackson' which explores the death of the musical legend.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the hour-long doc features the three U.S. detectives who led the original investigation into the controversial singer’s death in 2009. Orlando Martinez, Dan Myers, and Scott Smith will re-examine the case a decade later and reveal to viewers the extraordinary detail of their investigation as the case is officially reopened.

"We are delighted that this documentary has been picked up in territories across the world," said Matt Graff, managing director of Zig Zag Productions in a statement to THR. "This film focuses on the intriguing circumstances surrounding Michael Jackson’s death giving audiences a fascinating insight into the final moments of the pop star's life and the criminal process that lead to the arrest and conviction of Dr Conrad Murray."
