Michael Jackson is the star of a new Spike Lee documentary coming to Showtime on February 5. A teaser for the film aired for the first time earlier this week.
Michael Jackson’s Journey From Motown To Off The Wall takes a long, hard look at Michael Jackson’s career-from lead singer of The Jackson 5 to his solo artist breakthrough with the release of his album “Off the Wall,” in 1979.

The preview clip shares concert footage of Michael Jackson performing “Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough,” the first single released from “Off the Wall.” The single was Jackson’s first number one single as a solo artist, both in the U.S. and abroad. It earned Michael Jackson his first of many Grammy Awards.
Michael Jackson made an unfathomable impact on many musicians, and artists including Questlove from The Roots, as well as The Weeknd, share their thoughts on “Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough.” They dish on the impact the song had on their careers, as well as on its mysterious lyrics.
Unfortunately Showtime is a pay channel, and if you don’t have it, you don’t get to see Michael Jackson’s Journey From Motown To Off The Wall.

It sounds like it’s well worth subscribing before February 5–or at least very least, finding a friend who has Showtime.
