ESPN looks to keep the Michael Jordan momentum going after announcing its newest gem, Game 6: The Movie.
The film will be a cinematic production of the Chicago Bulls 1998 iconic game 6 of NBA Finals against the Utah Jazz.
Game 6: The Movie offers never-before-seen footage that was captured by five different NBA entertainment cameras, presenting a new innovative and cinematic way to view the historic match.
Game 6 of the NBA Finals is remembered for Michael Jordan’s game-winning shot over Utah Jazz guard, Byron Russell, to secure the Chicago Bulls’ sixth NBA Championship.
ESPN’s Executive Vice President said a press released that the never seen before footage takes NBA fans deep inside the action.
”Game 6: The Movie is an exciting, creative way to deliver even more enjoyment to basketball fans after reliving the journey of the 1997-98 Chicago Bulls in The Last Dance,” Connor Schell said.
”This material, which was captured on film, has existed in the NBA archives for 22 years, and we are very grateful to our colleagues at NBA Entertainment and Winik Media for this incredible opportunity.”
Game 6: The Movie will broadcast exclusively on ESPN and stream via the ESPN App May 20 at 8 p.m. CST.
