Michael Jordan, basketball legend, is getting a documentary about his life titled 'The Last Dance'. ESPN and Netflix are partnering on a 10-part documentary on His Airness himself.
The documentary has full cooperation from Jordan and features key people from the Bulls' championship team as well as other prominent figures in basketball and Jordan's life. 'The Last Dance' draws from over 500 hours of footage from the 1997-98 championship season that has never been publically released. This season is renown for marking the end of the 'Bulls Dynasty'. The documentary will also include footage from his Chicago life.
Each episode is reported to be an hour long and they will be directed by filmmaker Jason Hehir who has recently documented the life and career of wrestler André the Giant.
MJ came from humble beginnings, being cut from his varsity high school basketball team in his sophomore year to becoming a six-time 14-time All-Star, 10-time scoring champion, five-time regular-season MVP, six-time NBA champion and six-time NBA Finals MVP. He currently owns the Charlotte Hornets and is the face of Air Jordan shoes and apparel.
