Former North Carolina great Michael Jordan will participate in a multipart, 10-hour 30 for 30 documentary, according to ESPN.

Global streaming giant Netflix has partnered with ESPN Films to produce a 10-part docuseries set to chronicle National Basketball Association legend Michael Jordan.

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

"The Last Dance" is expected to premiere in 2019 and is expected to be announced today at an ESPN event. It is expected to pull from 500 hour of never-before-seen-footage from the 1997-98 championship season.

Long before Netflix arrived on the circuit and blew everyone way with their unique approach to making and acquiring gripping documentaries, ESPN had cemented their reputation as the definitive home for sports documentaries. After being drafted No.3 overall in 1984, Jordan tallied up six rings, six Finals MVPs, and five regular-season MVPs among a plethora of other accomplishments in the Chicago red and black jersey.

Jason Hehir, who directed the recent HBO documentary on Andre the Giant, will be in charge of the Jordan documentary.
