Showbusiness Rumors

ABC/ESPN’s highly anticipated 10-part Michael Jordan documentary, “The Last Dance,” is being moved up to April, The Post has learned. Sources said the start date will be Sunday, April 19. It was originally slated for June. ABC/ESPN plans to make an announcement on “Good Morning America” on Tuesday, according to sources.
Actor Paul Scheer — best known for his memorable role as “Andre” in FX’s “The League” — is currently working on Showtime’s “Black Monday” with Cheadle, and during an appearance on the “Clip City” podcast to talk about his Clippers fandom, he let the tidbit about his co-star’s role in “Space Jam 2” slip as an aside in a conversation about Blake Griffin’s acting success (emphasis mine): “Actually Don Cheadle, who I do ‘Black Monday’ with, he’s the bad guy in ‘Space Jam,’ and he said LeBron’s really great. He was great in ‘Train Wreck’ too.”
The plan is to make the show an annual preseason Big3 tournament, sources said. Cube and Kwatinetz are in the process of finalizing the rules for the show, engaging in dialogue with possible sponsors and narrowing down potential global TV broadcast partners, sources said. While it would seem that CBS would be the show’s logical home because “Big Brother” and The Big3 air on the network, there is talk that the show is being aggressively pursued by another suitor, sources said.
