Details emerge of Michael Jackson TV series

Producer J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot Productions is developing a television miniseries about the last days of Michael Jackson.

The series is based on an upcoming book by Tavis Smiley, Before You Judge Me: The Triumph and Tragedy of Michael Jackson's Last Days. 

The book is out next week.

It has been described as a taut novelistic rendering of the final months in the pop superstar's life. 

The book looks at his highs and lows, including his constant hunt for privacy in a life that was more public than almost any other.

Michael Jackson died in June 2009.
