Basketball-Icon-Michael-Jordan

ESPN Films and Netflix are teaming on The Last Dance, a 10-part documentary series about arguably the most important basketball player in history Michael Jordan for premiere in 2019.

Directed by Jason Hehir (The Fab Five, The ’85 Bears, Andre the Giant) and produced by Mike Tollin, the anthology will show Jordan and the Chicago Bulls and the popularity of the NBA during the 1990s. “The docuseries, made with the full participation of Jordan and other key figures from the Bulls’ championship teams, features more than 500 hours of never-before-seen footage from the’s team’s championship run in the 1997-98 season, along with commentary from dozens of others sports luminaries.” According to Deadline.

The series is produced by Mandalay Sports Media, in association with NBA Entertainment and Jump.23

With fellow basketball retired legends like Kobe Bryant receiving Oscars for their film efforts maybe Jordan will be next in line.
