ESPN's Michael Jordan documentary "The Last Dance" debuted with its first two episodes on this day in 2020. It averaged 5.6 million viewers per episode and was the most-watched documentary in ESPN's history. At the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards, "The Last Dance" won the award for Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Series.
The 10-part documentary series provided an in-depth look at the Chicago Bulls' dynasty through the lens of the final championship season in 1997-98. The Bulls allowed an NBA Entertainment crew to follow the team around for that entire season, and some of that never-before-seen footage is featured in the documentary. In addition, ESPN spoke to more than 100 people close to the team and personalities who experienced the run, exploring all angles of the Jordan phenomenon.
Here's how to watch the episodes and what you might have missed from the series.

There has never been a player quite like Pippen, who remains beloved by his teammates more than 20 years after "The Last Dance."
What was it like to cover the greatest of all time?
Jordan thrived in ways and in places that few players before him could match, and that even fewer players today can emulate.
Spending time with Dennis Rodman in the mid-1990s meant having a front-row seat to the basketball/pop culture phenomenon of the Bulls, an experience that can be described only as surreal.
