Michael Jackson TV autopsy canceled by Discovery amid public outrage. Discovery has canceled the planned Michael Jackson autopsy TV show. The television network was to air a reenactment.

Jackson fans from all over the world became outraged over the scheduled TV show. In addition, there was a conflict with the upcoming court hearing, which lawyers asked not to air the special. The Discovery Channel also listened to concerns from the late pop star's estate.

The show, "Michael Jackson's Autopsy: What Really Killed Michael Jackson," had been set to air in several countries of western Europe and in the United Kingdom on Jan. 13.

"Given the commencement of legal proceedings beginning next week, and at the request of Michael Jackson's estate, the scheduled broadcast of the medical documentary related to Michael Jackson's official autopsy has been postponed indefinitely," Discovery Networks International said in a statement.
