It was announced on March 31 that ESPN's highly-anticipated documentary "The Last Dance" would be released ahead of schedule.

"Sources said the start date will be Sunday, April 19". Told across 10 episodes.

Even Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James joined the chorus, calling for the doco! We need some new entertainment and this documentary promises to be a classic one with tons of never-before-seen footage.

Leana Wen, former health commissioner for the city of Baltimore, said it's insulting to suggest hospitals are hoarding supplies. The Comfort , pictured, will serve as a referral hospital for non-COVID-19 patients now admitted to land-based hospitals.

The New York Post previously reported the change, which will give ESPN something new and distinctive to show viewers at a time when its main product - live matches in basketball, baseball and other sports - are impossible to produce.

With no live sports on the horizon due to the current health crisis in the country many fans have been urging ESPN to release their 10 part Chicago Bulls documentary the "Last Dance" which is set to air in June. Without sports to air right now because of the global coronavirus pandemic, those plans were accelerated.

"Michael Jordan and the "90s Bulls weren't just sports superstars, they were a global phenomenon", said Jason Hehir, who directed the series". Netflix owns the worldwide rights to the docuseries.
