Lifetime‘s two-night Michael Jackson tribute continues tonight with a new Biography episode on the King of Pop. Beyond the Headlines – Biography Presents: Michael Jackson debuts at 10:34 p.m. ET on Tuesday, May 30, following a re-airing of Michael Jackson: Searching for Neverland. Read on for a preview of the new special.

Like Searching for Neverland, this hour-long special also relies on the anecdotes of Bill Whitfield and James Beard, who served as Jackson’s bodyguards during the last two years of his life. The two wrote 2014’s Remember The Time: Protecting Michael Jackson In His Final Days with Tanner Colby, which was the basis for Searching for Neverland. The real Beard and Whitfield sat down for interviews for Beyond the Headlines and are joined by “those closest to Michael.”

Beyond the Headlines is a series Lifetime produces with Biography that tells the real stories behind its “ripped-from-the-headlines” movies. When Lifetime aired films about Aaliyah, Brittany Murphy, Gabby Douglas, Amanda Knox and others, the hour-long specials usually follow the debut airing of the film.

The Jackson Beyond the Headlines episode debuts after a special “enhanced” presentation of Searching for Neverland. The film starred Jackson impersonator Navi as Jackson, with Chad L. Coleman as Whitfield and Sam Adegoke as Beard. The film was not endorsed by the Jackson estate, even though the bodyguards had good intentions by writing the book.

“If you’re a Michael Jackson fan and supporter, you deserve to know him more on a personal side, not just who he was but what he endured as a man, and as a father,” Whitfield and Beard told MJJ Community in 2014. “You deserve a true account from those that were there, not from those who can only repeat what they heard second hand.”
