The Lifetime movie will be based on bodyguards Bill Whitfield and Javon Beard's book Remember the Time: Protecting Michael Jackson in His Final Days.

It will focus on the last two years of Michael's life through the perspective of the guards. 

Searching for Neverland will star self-proclaimed world's greatest MJ impersonator, Navi as the late pop singer. 

Production of the movie will begin in February 2017.
