On "The Last Dance", Michael Jordan, & the filmmaking process with Jason Hehir


Director Jason Hehir talks to Jay Williams about the process of making a documentary as daunting as the ten-part "The Last Dance." He breaks down Michael Jordan's involvement and what it was like to film interviews with him at home, the impact that he sees the documentary having on the sports world at large, and what the process of moving the release date of the series was like. He also details how he scripted each episode to focus on one key month in the 1997-98 season and how players like Scottie Pippen, Dennis Rodman, Isiah Thomas, Reggie Miller, and Toni Kukoc fit into the overall narrative. Plus, how he got the job and what he's doing to celebrate after the last two episodes are finished.
