ESPN to Air Michael Jordan Documentary With Cursing, Offer a Clean Version on ESPN2

The Big Lead

Viewers will be able to choose their own adventure when the highly-anticipated and bumped-up Michael Jordan documentary Last Dance begins airing on Sunday night.

According to some exclusive Variety reporting:

ESPN plans to air two versions of the ten-part project: one, with all the athletes’ rough language intact, will air on the company’s flagship cable network; the other, with profanity edited out, will air simultaneously on ESPN2. “We take a lot of pride in sports as a communal viewing experience. All members of the family get to watch this,” says Connor Schell, executive vice president of content at ESPN, in an interview. “We felt this was the right thing to do.” Hearing the unedited interviews, he adds, “makes it feel more honest and more authentic and raw.”

Ideas like this is how people rise to lofty positions with VP in their title.
