Since Michael Jackson‘s untimely death, the world has been made privy to Dr. Conrad Murray‘s involvement in his passing. Now, viewers will be able to witness events unfold in real time. Yesterday, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor agreed to allow cameras into his courtroom to film Murray’s manslaughter trial as long as they don’t interfere with proceedings.

Pastor explained that he wanted “the absolute least intrusive placement” of a TV camera in a courtroom, though he has barred them from filming and broadcasting jury selection. Additionally, the court date for the trial has been bumped up by four days to March 24, the day that jury selection begins. Murray, who has pleaded not guilty to the charges and is free on bail, will be on trial for an estimated six weeks and faces up to four years in prison if convicted.

Dr. Murray was with Jackson when he passed away on June 25, 2009, and was soon fingered for over-administering the anesthetic propofol to the 50-year-old pop icon. Murry was initially hired to be his personal physician in anticipation of Jackson’s This Is It farewell concert series at London’s O2 Arena. TMZ reports that Murray’s team plans to hold AEG Live, the promter behind the This Is It tour, accountable for the pop star’s death, saying they overworked the pop star to such a weakend state that it is “unfair to balme” his death on propofal.
