Report Says ‘The Last Dance’ Is Now Most In-Demand Documentary In The World
ESPN's The Last Dance, the 10-episode documentary that chronicles the untold story of Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls dynasty, is now the "most in-demand documentary in the world," according to a report from Bloomberg.
As such, The Last Dance has dethroned the Netflix documentary Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness which is based off a true murder-for-hire story involving zoo owner Joe Exotic and his nemesis, a woman dedicated to shutting down his private zoo with over 200 tigers and other big cats—as the most popular documentary project.
"We are tracking a rise in demand for sports documentaries during the coronavirus pandemic," said Steve Langdon, a director of partnerships at Parrot Analytics, a research firm that aims to help the television industry understand global demand for content.
As of the moment, Netflix holds the rights to The Last Dance in the Philippines and countries outside the United States. In fact, it has been on the top trending movies and television shows in the digital streaming platform in the country since its April 20 premiere.
