ESPN Films and Netflix have announced a collaboration for the documentary series based on basketball legend Michael Jordan and the reign of his then NBA side Chicago Bulls during the 1990s.
The docuseries, called ‘The Last Dance’, is set to premiere in 2019. The exact release date has not been announced yet.
ESPN has said that the 10-hour, 10-part series will chronicle the rise of now retired NBA star and Chicago Bulls during the 90s with six title-winning streak during 1991-98. The series will include more than 500 hours of hitherto unseen footage from the team’s last championship run in the 1997-98 season.
The docuseries will feature the full participation of Jordan himself along with contributions from other players from the Bulls’ title-winning teams.
The series will be directed by Jason Hehir (who also made documentaries about Michigan’s Fab Five, the Super Bowl-winning 1985 Chicago Bears and wrestling icon Andre the Giant) and produced by Mike Tollin whose prior work includes Hardwood Dreams, Varsity Blues, Coach Carter, and Radio.
A trailer of ‘The Last dance’ was released yesterday on the official Twitter account of ESPN Films 30 for 30.
