Including Jordan himself, The Last Dance show interviews with Scottie Pippen, Dennis Rodman, and Phil Jackson. Although the production started in 2018, the release date was pushed to 2020. Due to COVID-19 pandemic, ESPN and Netflix decided to release the series with the following statement:
As society navigates this time without live sports, viewers are still looking to the sports world to escape and enjoy a collective experience. We’ve heard the calls from fans asking us to move up the release date for this series, and we’re happy to announce that we’ve been able to accelerate the production schedule to do just that. This project celebrates one of the greatest players and dynasties ever, and we hope it can serve as a unifying entertainment experience to fill the role that sports often play in our lives, telling a story that will captivate everyone, not just sports fans.
