In a dream come true for basketball nerds and fans, especially of Michael Jordan, his Airness has signed off on a wildly overdue documentary.

 

ESPN Films and Netflix will produce the 10-part series, built around over 500 hours of never-before-seen footage from the Chicago Bulls' championship run during 1997-98, with additional commentary from dozens of others notables.

 

Jordan, himself, has reportedly signed off on the production.

There is no debate. LeBron is absolutely a great player. It's amazing that he played in seven Finals in a row. But, Michael is just Michael Jordan,

Jason Hehir (The Fab Five, The 85 Bears, Andre the Giant) will direct the anthology will chronicle Jordan's ascendance with the Bulls. Key figures from the Bulls championship teams will participate in the series.

 

The series will also be produced by Mandalay Sports Media, in association with NBA Entertainment and Jump.23. (Low-key fact: Jordan owns his image, and must give for the use of his likeness, even to the NBA.)
