LOS ANGELES (AP) — Executors of Michael Jackson‘s estate have blasted NBC for plans to air a documentary on the doctor convicted of killing the singer.

In a letter Wednesday to top executives of NBC and Comcast, lawyers John Branca and John McClain expressed outrage that Dr.Conrad Murray is being treated like a celebrity.

They say the documentary entitled “Michael Jackson and the Doctor: A Fatal Friendship” offers Murray a chance to smear Jackson’s reputation and blame him for his own death.

Branca and McClain demanded the network refrain from airing the program Friday night.

NBC said it had no immediate comment.

Murray, a Houston-based cardiologist, was convicted Monday of involuntary manslaughter by a jury that found he was responsible for the pop star’s death. He is being held in Los Angeles County Jail.
