(Newser) – Just as Sky Arts pulled a controversial Michael Jackson TV special starring white actor Joseph Fiennes as the King of Pop, Lifetime announced that it is working on its own Jackson tribute film. In casting its Jackson, the network "[got] right what Sky Arts got wrong," Vanity Fair reports. Lifetime has cast Navi, a well-known MJ impersonator, to star as the iconic musician. Michael Jackson: Searching for Neverland, which will premiere sometime this year, is based on Remember the Time: Protecting Michael Jackson in His Final Days, a book written by two of his bodyguards that was published in 2014.
