Netflix, ESPN Films Team Up on 10-Part Michael Jordan Documentary

Jordan has approved “The Last Dance” and will take part in it.

Michael Jordan will be returning to the world of film – and it won’t be in Space Jam 2.

According to a press release, The Last Dance will be a 10-part documentary series profiling His Airness which will be a joint production of ESPN Films and Netflix.

Directed by Jason Hehir and produced by Mike Tollin, the anthology will focus on Jordan’s career and the state of the NBA in general when he was playing with the Chicago Bulls in the 1990s.

After the official announcement, the ESPN Films 30 for 30 account teased the doc on Twitter.

“Anchored by more than 500 hours of never-before-seen footage from the team’s last championship run in the 1997-98 season, The Last Dance will have the full participation of Jordan and other key figures from the Bulls’ championship teams, as well as dozens of other luminaries from basketball and beyond,” according to a press release.
