Going behind the music isn't enough when it comes to Michael Jackson — an entire film is needed.

On Friday, VH1 will debut an original movie on the King of Pop, "Man in the Mirror: The Michael Jackson Story," the cable network said.

The film traces the trials and tribulations of Jackson's life from his Motown days to his present legal woes. Flex Alexander, who plays the gloved-one, performed all the dance moves in the movie. Alexander now stars in UPN's "One on One." [CBS, VH1 and UPN are owned by Viacom.]

Though Jackson still awaits trial, the movie concludes in January of this year when the singer appeared in court to plead not guilty to child molestation charges.

The final scene shows Jackson after that plea, when fans clogged the Santa Maria, Calif., streets and cheered him as he hopped on top of a sport utility vehicle and entertained them with a few dance steps.
