Showtime Releases First Trailer for ‘Kobe Bryant’s Muse’ Documentary

Showtime has released the first trailer for upcoming documentary “Kobe Bryant’s Muse,” which purports to capture “a side of Kobe Bryant that the public has never seen before.” The doc is scheduled for a February premiere on the premium cabler.

“People know me because of what I am, a basketball player,” said Bryant. “In ‘Muse,’ everyone will begin to understand who I am and how I became who I am. I created this film to open up my journey in hopes of inspiring others as they guide their own.”

A 16-time All-Star, Bryant has earned five NBA championships during his 18 years in the league. At this point in his career, viewers will follow the basketball star as he attempts to cement his legacy, offering a look into the mind of an athlete motivated to be the best, but also contemplating life after a professional career.

“Rarely has a superstar athlete afforded this type of access and engaged in this level of self-reflection during his playing career,” said Stephen Espinoza, executive vice president and general manager of Showtime Sports. “Throughout his NBA career, Kobe has been an intensely private person, so in many ways this film is the antithesis of the Kobe Bryant that the public has come to know.”

He added, “Through this film, Kobe opens his heart and his mind to the world for the first time in a deeply personal way.”

“Kobe Bryant’s Muse” is created and produced by Bryant in association with Kobe Inc., and directed by Gotham Chopra.

    Do we get to see the sweet cuddly sexual predator side also, oh that’s right he settled that lawsuit. My bad.

      You mean the gold-digger that tried to manipulate and lie her way to a fortune? You should probably go read up on details of what actually happened and what kind of person that woman was before believing everything you hear like a naive fool.

      • equipmentguy says:

        Okay Tiiger and all you have to do is be intellectually honest and read the Colorado paper that states the FACTS DUDE “Kobe settled the case for an undisclosed financial amount and part of the agreement was he had to APOLOGIZE to the victim also”. That sure sounds like something most married guys would do if they didn’t do anything wrong, wow get a clue!

        You’re the naive fool to think that one has to be an emotionally healthy person to be raped, in fact it makes them more vulnerable to the likes of Basketball heroes looking for free sex out of town when mama isn’t looking.
