The 10-part series will debut in 2019.

ESPN & Netflix has decided it will tell Michael Jordan's life story.

Jordan, 55, is widely considered to be the greatest basketball player ever.

Be on the lookout for more regarding the docu-series and view the teaser featuring Jordan, Phil Jackson, Scottie Pippen, Dennis Rodman and all of the legendary figures of those ball clubs below.

Michael Jordan will be the subject in "The Last Dance" which will be officially announced on Tuesday, according to the Sporting News' Michael McCarthy.

He also had a near-sociopathic need to win, which should make those 500 unseen hours from The Last Dance particularly interesting.

The 10-hour, 10-part film, The Last Dance, will draw on more than 500 hours of previously unseen footage from the franchise's sixth and final National Basketball Association title of the decade in 1997-98.

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.

The "Last Dance" will be directed by Jason Hehir, who helmed "Andre the Giant" for HBO and also 30 for 30 series, "The Fab Five" and "The '85 Bears".
