Showtime has greenlighted a documentary profiling one of the most high-profile players in the NBA. Deadline.com reports that the new project, "Kobe Bryant's Muse," will examine "the life, inspirations and challenges facing one of the most successful and complex figures in professional sports, according to Showtime."
The feature-length project, scheduled for this fall, will be directed by Gotham Chopra ("Decoding Deepak"). Bryant, who has been with the Los Angeles Lakers throughout his professional career, has been a part of five NBA championships with the team.
Said Stephen Espinoza, executive VP and general manager of Showtime Sports: “'Kobe Bryant’s Muse' will offer viewers a deep character portrait of a professional athlete who has transcended his sport to become a culture-moving personality. 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.”
