Initial plans had the docu-series airing in a couple months. However, ESPN decided to treat people staying at-home in quarantine with an early release.
There was already a massive fervor generating for the Michael Jordan documentary, “The Last Dance,” which focuses on the Chicago Bulls‘ 1997-98 season but also goes in depth on Jordan’s legendary career. With the entire nation quarantined, however, the anticipation has swelled considerably — so much that ESPN has chosen to air the documentary starting this Sunday, moving up significantly from its originally scheduled June air date.
