ESPN Films and Netflix are teaming up for a 10-part Michael Jordan docuseries titled “The Last Dance,” which will chronicle His Airness and the ’90s Chicago Bulls.

The 10-hour documentary series will be directed by Jason Hehir, who recently did “Andre the Giant” for ex-ESPN employee and “30 for 30” founder Bill Simmons.

That one, a more traditional documentary film in terms of its runtime and format, aired on HBO.

“The Last Dance,” produced by Mike Tollin, will be able to draw from more than 500 hours of never-before-seen footage from the team’s last championship run in the 1997-98 season, per Tuesday’s announcement.

The docuseries “will 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,” ESPN and Netflix said in their joint release.

“The Last Dance” is set to premiere in 2019.
