In Conversation With: The team behind The Last Dance

In the fall of 1997, Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls allowed a film crew to follow them as they went for their sixth NBA title in eight seasons. The result was The Last Dance, ESPN Sports, Netflix and Mandalay Sports Media’s critically acclaimed docuseries. A stunning, comprehensive behind-the-scenes look at the iconic team and its legendary star player. Join us for an in-depth conversation with Mike Tollin, award-winning Executive Producer and Co-Chair of Mandalay Sports Media and Andy Thompson, Executive Producer, The Last Dance and Producer, NBA Entertainment about the making of the show and its impact on the documentary world.
