Michael Jordan will be the subject of a 10- part documentary profiling his life in basketball. This will be a joint project with ESPN Films and Netflix which will premiere in 2019.

His Airness, Michael Jordan, will have his story told in ESPN’s classic style. “Last Dance” as the 10-part series will be named, will be covering Jordan’s story. ESPN released a tweet on Monday teasing the upcoming documentary about one of the most prolific NBA player of all time.

The production is scheduled to debut next year on both ESPN and Netflix and will be produced by Mandalay Sports Media in association with NBA Entertainment and Jordan’s Jump.23 company.


Richard Deitsch of the Athletic tweeted that Michael Jordan has signed off on the documentary and will participate on the 10-part series. The documentary will also have unseen footage from the Chicago Bulls championship run in 1997-1998.

The story of Michael Jordan is well known throughout the sporting world. He went from being cut from his high school basketball team in his sophomore year to North Carolina University where he won a National Championship in 1982 hitting the game-winning shot against Patrick Ewing and Georgetown University.

He was drafted by the Chicago Bulls third overall in the 1984 NBA Draft. Jordan went on to win the NBA regular season MVP five times, six NBA champions, and six NBA Finals MVPs.

He finished his career as, in most people’s opinion, the greatest player of all time. Maybe the greatest athlete of all time.

The face of Nike apparel, Jordan and his Air Jordan brand are as famous today as they were when he was still playing.

Jordan is currently the principal owner of the Charlotte Hornets.
