Spike Lee’s ‘Kobe’ to debut in N.Y.

ESPN, Tribeca fests partner on NBA telepic

NEW YORK — Spike Lee’s “Kobe Doin’ Work,” a telepic capturing a day in the life of NBA star Kobe Bryant, will preem during the Tribeca Film Festival before its May debut on ESPN.

The April 25 bow is part of the ESPN Sports Film Festival, a co-venture with Tribeca. Eight sports-themed pics will screen between April 22 and May 3.

Lee, a famously visible and vocal fan of the New York Knicks, and his d.p. Matthew Libatique spent time with the Los Angeles Lakers’ Bryant last spring before, during and after a playoff game against the San Antonio Spurs.

“Kobe Doin’ Work” will bow May 16 on ESPN.
