E! President and CEO, Ted Harbert, is quoted as saying:
"I'm a person who believes strongly that what we need to bring to television is some taste."
As part of their "taste" initiative, E! Entertainment Television and Sky Broadcasting are planning to do daily re-enactments of Michael Jackson's trial.
They plan to broadcast a weekday 30 minute programme about the trial, starting January 31.
Actors will portray all the major protagonists, and at weekends there will be a highlights show.
