Watch the trailer for Michael Jordan's upcoming 10-part Netflix documentary series

The Shot. The Flu Game. The 10-Part Netflix Documentary.

There's no question that Michael Jordan's legend looms large, so ESPN Films and Netflix announced Tuesday that they are producing a 10-part documentary series about the seminal basketball player.

The two companies unveiled the trailer for the project, titled the The Last Dance, which will span Jordan's run with the Chicago Bulls in the 1990s. Jordan and the Bulls captured three straight NBA championships from 1991-93, then another three in a row from 1996-98 after Jordan's brief first retirement. The docu-series will center around that final 1997-98 season and feature 500 hours of unseen footage, per ESPN.

The whole legendary story premieres in 2019, but you can get a taste in the trailer below. Kathryn Krawczyk
