Kobe Bryant Documentary in the Works at Showtime

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 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.

Bryant is recovering from a serious Achilles’ heel injury that kept him out of most of the 2013-14 season.

“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 of Showtime.

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,” Chopra said.  “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.
