REPORT: 10-Hour Michael Jordan Documentary Is In The Works

    After the success of O.J. Simpson’s eight-hour ESPN documentary, Michael Jordan gained the motivation to tell his life-story in a major documentary.

    The NBA and Creative Arts Agency are said to be looking for someone to finance a 10-hour documentary about the greatest basketball player of all-time. The doc will reportedly give us an insight to Jordan’s infamous gambling addiction, something we haven’t really heard about from MJ himself.

    If any athlete deserves a 10-hour documentary, it’s the G.O.A.T. Via PageSix:

    The producing team is led by Mike Tollin, who spearheaded ESPN’s acclaimed “30 for 30” series and is partners with Peter Guber in Mandalay Sports Media. The project has been pitched to ESPN, Showtime, HBO and Fox Sports, and Jordan’s reps are looking for a deal somewhere north of $20 million.

    The documentary will cover Jordan’s bizarre retirement from basketball to play professional baseball, the tragic murder of his father, and his triumphant comeback. It is expected the film will gloss over his love of gambling.

    The success of ESPN’s eight-hour O.J. Simpson documentary earlier this year is said to have convinced Jordan that the time is right for his life story.
