ABC/ESPN’s highly anticipated 10-part Michael Jordan documentary, “The Last Dance,” is being moved up to April, The Post has learned.
Sources said the start date will be Sunday, April 19. It was originally slated for June.
ABC/ESPN plans to make an announcement on “Good Morning America” on Tuesday, according to sources.
ESPN declined to confirm either the start date or the GMA plan.
The documentary was set to debut in June prior to the coronavirus outbreak that has halted games at all levels of competition.
Social media has implored ESPN/ABC to move up the documentary’s beginning because of the hunger for new sports programming. ESPN and its four partners, including Netflix, Jordan, the NBA and Mandalay Sports Media, have heard the calls and have acted on them. Netflix owns the international rights to the docuseries.
