CAA & NBA shopping whopping 10 hour MJ docu for some reason

The NBA and CAA (Creative Artists Agency) are shopping a 10-hour authorized documentary about Michael Jordan according to Richard Johnson. Production has not yet started, but the film will mostly be about His Airness’ comeback in the late ’90s (after his stint playing baseball), when he won three of his six championship rings.

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.

Sorry Mike. You are no OJ Simpson...
