LOS ANGELES, Sept. 1 (UPI) -- ABC-TV says it has acquired the rights to U.S. director Spike Lee's documentary about the making of Michael Jackson's album, "Bad."

The documentary, "Bad25," will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival next month before its release on Thanksgiving, the Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday.

"This will be a very special Thanksgiving for all families to enjoy the genius of Michael Jackson," Lee said in a statement. "Big thanks to ABC for allowing people to witness the making of Michael Jackson's 'Bad' album."

"Bad25" features never-before-seen footage from Jackson's archives documenting the pop star's creative vision during the making of the album, which made history with five consecutive No. 1 singles, the Times reported.

Martin Scorsese, Mariah Carey, Sheryl Crow, L.A. Reid and Kanye West will be featured in the documentary as part of a series of interviews Lee conducted with Jackson's collaborators, confidants and other musicians.
