Netflix & ESPN Partner On Michael Jordan Docuseries 'The Last Dance'

16 May 2018

The film, directed by Jason Hehir (The Fab Five) and produced by Mike Tollin, will also reportedly cover the rise of the National Basketball Association during Air Jordan's reign.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hehir has access to "more than 500 previously unseen hours of footage" from the 1997-1998 National Basketball Association season, which marked Jordan's final championship run with the Bulls. Netflix got away from these types of documentaries after losing the licensing rights to the 30 for 30 films more than a year ago.

But Michael Jordan's name still rings loud and clear as one of the most acclaimed of all time.

Directed by Jason Hehir and produced by Mike Tollin, the anthology is expected to be released in 2019. We should have seen everything already.
