Move Over Tiger King. Here Comes The GOAT.
The most anticipated ESPN documentary has been fast tracked to April.
Originally scheduled to air in June, the ESPN 10 part series, "The Last Dance", has been moved up to April.
"The Last Dance" follows the 1997-98 Chicago Bulls season as the work toward a 3rd straight NBA championship. NBA Entertainment films followed the team for the entire season and never before seen footage will air.
There is also interviews with over a 100 different athletes and people giving the viewers an even more in depth look at Micheal Jordan and the Chicago Bulls.
ESPN will air two episodes on Sunday nights for 5 weeks starting on April 19th and will conclude on May 17th.
Given the circumstances that America is in with COVID-19, this has the opportunity to be the most watched limited series ever.
"As society navigates this time without live sports, viewers are still looking to the sports world to escape and enjoy a collective experience," ESPN said in a statement. "We've heard the calls from fans asking us to move up the release date for this series, and we're happy to announce that we've been able to accelerate the production schedule to do just that. This project celebrates one of the greatest players and dynasties ever, and we hope it can serve as a unifying entertainment experience to fill the role that sports often play in our lives, telling a story that will captivate everyone, not just sports fans."
