ESPN Films, Netflix to release 10-part Michael Jordan documentary

15 May 2018

ESPN and Netflix are ready to tell a story so big they need each other to help tell it.

Films and Netflix are partnering up for a 10-part docu-series that will chronicle the rise of National Basketball Association legend Michael Jordan as well as the 1990s Chicago Bulls.

Jason Hehir, who directed various ESPN 30 for 30 episodes and the HBO documentary, Andre the Giant, is making all 10 episodes here. Producing the series will be Mike Tollin, whose prior work includes Hardwood Dreams, Varsity Blues, Coach Carter, and Radio. We should have seen everything already.

One of the most interesting aspects of the upcoming Jordan documentary is that the Hall of Famer will be providing his "full participation".

Titled, The Last Dance, the docu-series will have an in-depth look into one of the most legendary dynasties to take the hardwood. Thankfully, Michael Jordan also made Space Jam so he's culturally unimpeachable.

An official announcement is expected at ESPN's upfront presentation on Tuesday. But Richard Deitsch of The Athletic reported Jordan approves of this project and will be involved with it.
