Following five weeks of record ratings for “The Last Dance,” which helped ESPN to an 11 percent bump in April viewership year over year, the network will air three 30 for 30 Films over the next four Sunday nights, filling the void left without live sports. Two of the films will return to the late 1990s for the complicated stories of Lance Armstrong as well as Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa. The third film will examine the life and purpose that motivated Bruce Lee, the martial arts trailblazer and pop culture icon.
