According to Reuters, LA Judge Michael Pastor has confirmed that TV cameras will be allowed to film the upcoming involuntary manslaughter trail of Michael Jackson’s former doctor Conrad Murray, providing said filming does not interfere with the proceedings.

Murray, of course, is accused of acting negligently in administering the drugs that killed the late of king of pop back in 2009. He denies the charges. The trial is due to kick off on 24 Mar and could run for up to six weeks.

Jury selection will not be filmed, but local TV firms have been invited to submit proposals for filming the main part of the trial, and Pastor says he has no problem with cameras being in court providing they do not intrude on the hearing.

Public interest in the case remains high, and if the proceedings are likely to be aired on TV the whole trial will probably become something of a media circus.
