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.
