MUMBAI: With the Diwali line-up coming to an end and Halloween just around the corner, English GEC channel Zee Cafe is planning to premiere an animated special featuring the King of Pop, Michael Jackson.

Michael Jackson’s Halloween, an hour long special will include the legendary popstar’s extensive discography as its soundtrack.

In line with the channel’s promise of ‘All Eyes On New’, the Halloween special will make its Indian television premiere on 29 October at 1pm and 9pm on Zee Café and also a simulcast on Zee Studio at 1pm.

In the US, CBS TV network will telecast Michael Jackson’s Halloween on 27 October.

Produced by The Michael Jackson Estate, ‘Michael Jackson’s Halloween’ follows millennials Vincent and Victoria who ‘accidentally’ meet on Halloween night and find themselves, along with Ichabod the dog, at a mysterious hotel located at 777 Jackson Street called This Place Hotel. Once inside, Vincent and Victoria go on an unexpected, magical adventure of personal discovery which culminates in a spectacular Thriller dance finale starring the iconic popstar himself.

The special boasts of a star-studded cast of voice talents with Lucas Till and Kiersey Clemons voicing the lead characters Vincent and Victoria respectively. They are joined by Hollywood stars like The Big Bang Theory's Jim Parsons, Kung Fu Panda film franchise’s Lucy Liu, The Good Wife's Christine Baranski and Alan Cumming, Emmy Award Winner Brad Garret and CSI's George Eads amongst others.

&Privé HD is also premiering the critically acclaimed movie ‘The Founder’ on 29 October at 1pm and 9pm. The powerful biographical drama stars Academy Award winner Michael Keaton as the founder of the much-loved fast food chain, McDonalds. Acclaimed actors Nick Offerman and John Carroll Lynch also star in pivotal roles as the brothers who founded the original restaurant.

The movie chronicles the life of Ray Kroc, the entrepreneur who gave the world McDonald’s. It narrates his journey as a salesman who took a small burger joint in San Bernardino, California, franchised it around the country and turned it into the McDonald’s Corporation that we know today.
