News that surfaced over a year ago about the National Basketball Association shopping a 10-hour Jordan documentary was confirmed on Tuesday, as ESPN Films released an official trailer for "The Last Dance".

The series will be directed by Jason Hehir, who has previously directed other sports documentaries such as The Fab Five, The '85 Bears, and Andre the Giant.

ESPN's "30 for 30" film series has been very well-received, and the network's venture into longer form a couple years ago with OJ: Made In America was incredibly wide-ranging and well done. There will also be all-new commentary, presumably as voiceover and talking-head documentary style first-hand accounts, from dozens of other historical sports figures.

Michael Jordan is getting a deserved docu-series.

The Last Dance will be coming to Netflix sometime in 2019.

The series will feature over 500 hours of unseen footage from the Bulls' final title in the 1997-98 National Basketball Association season and will air on Netflix in 2019.

It looks like the 1990s Chicago Bulls will be the primary focus, but considering the documentary will run 10 hours, expect his college career to get some play.
