Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant is the subject of a new documentary called “Kobe Bryant’s
Muse,” which will air this fall on Showtime. The project, directed by Gotham Chopra, is currently
filming in Los Angeles and will offer an in-depth look into the life, inspirations and challenges facing
one of the most successful and complex figures in professional sports.“We are thrilled that Kobe has
given us this unprecedented access, which will allow our viewers to witness such a challenging period
of time in the life of one of the NBA’s greatest players,” said Stephen Espinoza, Executive Vice President
and General Manager.
The documentary will examine Bryant’s storied basketball career with the Lakers, detailing his
mentorships, allies and rivalries that have helped shape his 18-year tenure in the NBA, in addition
to his recent achilles heel surgery and current rehabilitation. “As a lifelong Boston Celtics fan, never
did I imagine I would collaborate with Laker great Kobe Bryant,” said Chopra. “Kobe’s quest for
greatness transcends rivalries and I’m excited by his and Showtime’s willingness to go down this
rabbit hole together. I’m confident audiences will be intrigued by what comes out the other side.”
Bryant is exec producing “Kobe Bryant’s Muse” along with Chopra in association with Mamba Media.
