The 30 For 30 series of sports documentaries from ESPN Films are some of the greatest things in sports history, giving fans an inside look at some of the most iconic and/or historic moments from the games, teams, and players we all love.
On Tuesday morning, ESPN announced a partnership with Netflix to produce a 10-hour (in 10 episodes) documentary about the career of Michael Jordan. Entitled The Last Dance, the series will focus on Jordan’s final championship run with the Bulls in 1997-98, but also take the time to explore Jordan’s rise to superstardom and how it affected the entire NBA.

The series will be directed by Jason Hehir, who also did the “Fab Five” episode of 30 For 30. He recently directed the Andre the Giant documentary for HBO, as well.
The Last Dance claims to 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.” It also claims to have access to “more than 500 hours of never-before-seen footage from the team’s last championship run.” In short, this looks like a must-watch for any basketball fan.
