The trial of Michael Jackson's doctor may be broadcast on TV.

A US judge said he will approve TV coverage of the involuntary manslaughter trial of Dr Conrad Murray if the camera is unobtrusive.

The Los Angeles Superior Court judge also said he was moving up jury selection to March 24 because the original date of March 28 was too close to the absolute statutory limit for a speedy trial.

In an effort to clear pre-trial motions, the judge set another hearing for February 15. By then, he hopes TV outlets will have submitted a coverage plan for final approval.

Dr Murray has pleaded not guilty in the death of the pop superstar from an overdose of the powerful anaesthetic propofol and other sedatives.
