Michael Jackson starred in a posthumous documentary. His brothers are doing their own reality show. But his former physican isn't going Hollywood.

A rep for the embattled Dr. Conrad Murray says there are no plans for him to appear in a television special, despite reports suggesting otherwise.

"There is no proposed deal," says spokeswoman Miranda Sevcik. "They were thinking about doing something in the future, but it's been blown way out of proportion."

Sevcik says a British production crew followed the cardiologist around for one day in November as he visited with patients and friends, with the goal being to record his patients' reactions to Murray being back at work.

Were they hoping for shock-and-awe, sigh-of-relief, pee-in-their-pants, what?

"The crew wanted to follow him...no interviews or anything. They just wanted to see his patients' reactions," Sevcik said.

She noted that Murray's lawyers informed the crew that they cannot show any portion of their footage until after every legal issue stemming from Jackson’s death is behind him, which could take up to five years.

"We have them on an ironclad contract saying if they show anything, we can sue them," Sevcik says. "So they won't touch the stuff."

"There is no show, no special, no documentary. They just sent a crew to follow him around for his return, and they went home the next day."

Murray has been the subject of a criminal investigation tied to Jackson's death, but no charges have been filed.

The cardiologist returned to work in November "because of a deteriorating financial condition and prompting by many of his beloved patients," according to his attorney, Ed Chernoff.
