ESPN is moving up the release of its Michael Jordan documentary "The Last Dance" from June to April. The 10-part series will now begin April 19. The move was announced on Good Morning America on Tuesday in response to fans asking for more programming while sports are on hold because of the coronavirus.

The coronavirus pandemic has halted sports leagues around the world, leaving a giant hole for fans. April should have been the stretch run of the NBA season, with teams jockeying for playoff positioning. It's now unclear when the league's games will resume.

"The Last Dance" takes an in-depth look at the Chicago Bulls' dynasty through the lens of the final championship in 1997-98. The Bulls allowed an NBA Entertainment crew to follow them around for that entire season, and some of that never-before-seen footage will be in the documentary.
