ESPN and Netflix team up to chronicle the rise of Michael Jordan

Sports fans - basketball fans, specifically - have always been wanting a great Michael Jordan documentary.

ESPN Films and Netflix are working together on a 10-part Michael Jordan documentary, The Last Dance, that will premiere in 2019.

According to The Athletic's Richard Deitsch, Jordan approved the project and is taking part in the documentary.

Michael Jordan's Chicago Bulls dynasty is getting a super-sized version of ESPN's 30-for-30 treatment, the network announced today.

The documentary series will be directed by Jason Heir who previously directed The Fab Five, The '85 Bears and the recent Andre the Giant documentary.

Hehir had access to nearly 500 hours of previously unseen footage from that 97-98' championship run for the Bulls.

The network dropped the news on Tuesday morning, releasing a trailer for the documentary entitled "The Last Dance" which focuses on Jordan's career and the work ethic he had throughout it. Jordan won a national championship at North Carolina in 1982 and spent three years with the Tar Heels.

The first rule about being a Michael Jordan fan is that you can never learn enough about Michael Jordan.

He is now the principal owner of the Charlotte Hornets, and he is a successful entrepreneur as the face of the Air Jordan shoe and apparel line.
