    The trial for Phil Spector, the legendary music producer who's worked with the Beatles and the Righteous Brothers, will be televised, according to a court order released Friday. Spector, currently out on $1 million bail, is under suspicion for the murder of actress Lana Clarkson four years ago in his home.

    The Californian judicial system believes it's important to televise the trial because of the nasty aftertaste left by the O.J. Simpson media circus. "We have to get by that case," said California Superior Court Judge Larry Paul Fidler. "There's going to come a time that it will be commonplace to televise trials. If it had not been for Simpson, we'd be there now." Fidler also reminded the press that if the coverage gets out of hand, he promises to "pull the plug at any time."

    Jury selection, the only portion of the trial which will not be televised, begins on March 19.
