Oprah Winfrey to host After Neverland special with Michael Jackson accusers


Michael Jackson, James Safechuck (Courtesy of HBO)Oprah Winfrey is ready to ask Michael Jackson‘s accusers some serious questions.

HBO announced on Wednesday that Winfrey is set to host a Q&A with Wade Robson and James Safechuck, who in the documentary Leaving Neverland claim that Jackson abused them as children. The two men join the documentary’s director Dan Reed, who will also participate in the conversation.

The special, titled Oprah Winfrey Presents: After Neverland, is set to air simultaneously on HBO and OWN on Monday, March 4, at 10 p.m. ET, immediately following the second installment of the four-hour doc. The Q&A session will be taped in front of an audience of sexual abuse survivors and those whose lives have been impacted by abuse.

Since the announcement of the controversial film, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival last month, the Jackson Family has vigorously denied all sexual abuse claims, and also attempted to block HBO from airing the story.

Winfrey’s conversation with the three men will also be made available as part of her Oprah SuperSoul Conversations podcast.

The first part of Leaving Neverland premieres on HBO this Sunday, March 3.
