"OPRAH WINFREY PRESENTS: AFTER NEVERLAND" Debuts March 4 On HBO And OWN

HBO and OWN will present OPRAH WINFREY PRESENTS: AFTER NEVERLAND, a conversation hosted by Oprah Winfrey featuring Wade Robson and James Safechuck, subjects of the two-part HBO documentary "Leaving Neverland," alongside director Dan Reed. Taped before an audience of survivors of sexual abuse and others whose lives have been impacted by it, the special debuts simultaneously on HBO and OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network MONDAY, MARCH 4 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT), immediately following the conclusion of part two of "Leaving Neverland" on HBO.

OPRAH WINFREY PRESENTS: AFTER NEVERLAND will also be available on WATCH OWN, HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and partners' streaming platforms the same day, Monday, March 4. It will also be available on "Oprah's SuperSoul Conversations" podcast.

The two-part HBO documentary "Leaving Neverland" explores the separate but parallel experiences of two young boys, James "Jimmy" Safechuck, at age ten, and Wade Robson, at age seven, both of whom were befriended by Michael Jackson. They and their families were invited into his wondrous world, entranced by the singer's fairy-tale existence as his career reached its peak.

Through gut-wrenching interviews with Safechuck, now 40, and Robson, now 36, as well as their mothers, wives and siblings, "Leaving Neverland" presents their accounts of sustained abuse, exploring the complicated feelings that led both men to confront their experiences after both had a young son of their own.

Produced and directed by Dan Reed (HBO's Emmy(R)-nominated "Three Days of Terror: The Charlie Hebdo Attacks" and "Terror at the Mall"), the first part of "Leaving Neverland" debuts Sunday, March 3 (8:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT), followed by the second part the following night, Monday. March 4 (8:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO.

The documentary will also be available on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and partners' streaming platforms.

"Leaving Neverland" recently had its world premiere in the Special Events section at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival. Among the early critical raves for the documentary, Rolling Stone described it as "hard to watch, tougher to ignore, impossible to forget... a portrait of bravery," and the Hollywood Reporter called it "harrowing, complicated and heartbreaking," while Variety hailed the documentary's "devastatingly powerful and convincing testimony."
