It details his treatment of Jackson, including his administration of the anesthetic propofol.

The more-than two hour interview has never been played in public before, nor has a transcript of its contents been released.

Court transcripts state prosecutors will call a Los Angeles police detective to introduce the interview, which was conducted two days after Jackson's June 25, 2009 death.

Murray has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter.
