    ESPN/ABC is moving up the air date of the much anticipated 10-part documentary on Michael Jordan, “The Last Dance,” to April 19 from June.

    Episodes will air every Sunday from April 19-May 17.

    The start date was first reported by the New York Post.

    The documentary, which features interviews with everyone from Barack Obama to Magic Johnson to Phil Jackson to Kobe Bryant to Shaquille O’Neal to Dennis Rodman to Reggie Miller, was originally set to air during the NBA Finals.

    Now with the public hungry for programming during the coronavirus pandemic, ESPN/ABC has agreed to move up the air date.

    LeBron James says he can’t wait.

    Led by Jordan, the Chicago Bulls won three straight NBA titles from 1991-93 and three more after he came out of retirement from 1996-98.
