In case you've forgotten... Following its Venice Film Festival and Toronto International Film Festival screenings, Spike Lee's Michael Jackson documentary, made in collaboration with the estate of Michael Jackson and Sony Music, titled Bad 25, is scheduled to air on ABC, this Thanksgiving Day, Thusrday.

The feature documentary was released theatrically for 1 week, in October, but, unfortunately, only in New York, and Los Angeles.

I'm guessing this was to give it an Oscar-qualifying run.

The rest of the USA (and those in NYC and LA who missed the 1-week theatrical) will finally get their chance to see it on ABC, this Thursday, Thanksgiving night (November 22), from 9:30pm to 11pm.

Bad 25 shares fresh insights into the King of Pop's creative vision that resulted in his landmark Bad album, marking its 25th anniversary this year.

The film promises rare and never-before-seen footage, and the first ever in-depth, behind-the-scenes film project to chronicle a Michael Jackson album and tour.

Included will be numerous interviews conducted by Spike Lee, including Jackson's confidants, choreographers, musicians and collaborators.

Here's a 1-minute preview of what to expect:
