Andrew Thompson

Vice President, Content Production

NBA National Basketball Association

Andrew has been a producer for NBA Entertainment for a quarter of a century. He was a field producer during the Last Dance and it was his original idea to go to Michael Jordan with the idea of filming the entire season, which became the narrative centerpiece of the documentary. He is also the uncle of NBA player Klay Thompson, and brother of Mychal Thompson who won two NBA championships with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Speaking on: In Conversation With: The team behind The Last Dance

At the Banff Media Festival, we met with Netflix and took a ride up Sulphur Mountain on the gondola. That’s where we made the pitch.
