The award-winning director and producer behind the Michael Jackson documentary, Leaving Neverland, is to speak at the Edinburgh TV Festival.

Dan Reed will join a panel of leading filmmakers to look at the future of “factual, feature documentaries with global appeal”.

Reed is also behind the award-winning and critically-acclaimed documentaries The Valley, Terror in Mumbai and The Paedophile Hunter.

Speaking of Leaving Neverland he said: “It shows how unfolding a complex, character-led, uncompromising and very, very long true story can still draw a mass audience in a landscape of info-mush and fake news.”

The Edinburgh TV Festival runs from August 21-23
