ESPN & NETFLIX ANNOUNCE JOINT MICHAEL JORDAN DOCUSERIES

Netflix has linked up with ESPN Films for a ten-part docu-series on Michael Jordan titled The Last Dance. Directed by Jason Hehir, who also directed Andre the Giant, The Last Dance will dive deep into MJ’s storied NBA career and his run of six NBA titles in the ’90s. The docuseries will feature interviews with Jordan himself and “key figures” from the 1990s Bulls teams. It will also draw from 500-plus hours of previously unreleased footage from the 1997-98 season, which concluded with Jordan’s sixth and final championship. The Last Dance is set to premier in 2019.
