Just hours before closing arguments in Dr. Conrad Murray's involuntary manslaughter trial, a documentary about the embattled physician is being shopped to networks.
Murray, who faces up to four years in prison in the death of Michael Jackson, has been a part of filming the documentary since being charged earlier this year.
Dr. Murray, as we know, has decided not to take the stand at his trial, but has given long in depth interviews to the film crew ... for whatever that's worth.
"This project has been in the works since Murray's arrest," says a source. "It was originally conceived to help him get his reputation back following the case."
"However, another primary driving force of it is to generate money so that Murray can pay his lawyers and experts," the source close to Murray confided.
The N.Y. Post broke the story and says Dr. Conrad Murray is hoping the documentary will earn at least a million dollars. That may be wishful thinking.
Our source says, "Dr. Murray and his lawyers were hoping it would sell for a million, but it looks like the max a network would pay is around $250K."
If Dr. Murray is convicted, that price could go up ... or down.
Closing arguments are set to begin tomorrow morning at 9.
