ESPN released a first look Tuesday at its 10-part documentary on the 1998 Chicago Bulls team, which won the franchise's sixth championship in eight years.

"The Last Dance," a joint production with Netflix, is coming to ABC and ESPN in June 2020 before rolling out on Netflix later in 2020, an ESPN spokesperson told FOX Business.

Each of the team's biggest players sat for interviews for the series, which also features conversations with former President Barack Obama, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, Kobe Bryant, Magic Johnson, Justin Timberlake, Bob Costas, Patrick Ewing and Roy Williams, among others.

Michael Jordan said he is "still nervous" about how the series will be received.

"I didn't want to do it, in all honesty," Jordan told NBC in October. "I felt like it was raw enough that people would not really understand the mentality that it takes to be a winner, to be a leader. ... It's going to be interesting to see how people interpret the whole thing. That's going to be the most intriguing aspect of the whole thing."

Watch: 

The series, which was originally supposed to premiere in 2019, draws from more than 500 hours of never-before-seen footage from the 1997-1998 season.
