Oprah Winfrey Presents: After Neverland will also be available on WATCH OWN, HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and partners' streaming platforms the same day, Monday, March 4.
The four-part documentary, directed and produced by Dan Reed, revolves around Wade Robson, 36, and James Safechuck, 40, who were close to Jackson and had sleepovers at his Neverland ranch when they were minors.
Member of Michael Jackson's family have appeared on USA television to defend the singer in the week that a documentary labelling him a sexual predator is set to air.
Jackie replied, "I don't care to see it...because I know my brother. And I do not understand how a filmmaker can make a documentary and not want to speak to myself or some of the other families that were at Neverland".
"This documentary is not telling the truth", claimed MJ's brother, Marlon, in an interview with "CBS This Morning" that is scheduled to air Wednesday. "I mean what he testified under oath are all the different things he said", Marlon Jackson said. Channel 4 will be airing the Michael Jackson documentary in the United Kingdom on Wednesday, March 6 and Thursday, March 7. I know my brother, he's my little brother. "And I think that was the thing, is that his naiveté was his downfall in a way".
Their central criticism has been the film's failure to talk to family members or other defenders of Jackson, whom they insist never molested a child.
The Rise and Fall will look at Jackson's whole career, rather than exclusively the accusations of sexual abuse seen in Leaving Neverland.
"No, because I know my brother".
Robson defended Jackson during the 2005 child molestation case. He and Safechuck said they saw their childhood experiences in a new light after they both became fathers to young sons of their own.
The film has provoked a furious reaction from the Jackson estate and it is suing HBO, the US TV channel which co-produced it alongside Channel 4.
