SHOWTIME® AND KOBE BRYANT FIND THEIR MUSE
KOBE BRYANT’S MUSE – The New Original Feature-Length Documentary Captures a Never-Before-Seen Portrait of An Elite Athlete’s Professional and Personal Journey
As Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant prepares for his much-anticipated return to the NBA next season, SHOWTIME is set to air the original documentary film KOBE BRYANT’S MUSE, an in-depth look into the life, inspirations and challenges facing one of the most successful and complex figures in professional sports. The feature-length documentary is directed by Gotham Chopra (Decoding Deepak, ESPN’s upcoming 30 For 30 film, The Little Master). The film is currently in production in Los Angeles and will air this fall on SHOWTIME.
At this critical juncture in his career, viewers will watch as Bryant attempts to cement his legacy, opening a window into the mind of an elite athlete still motivated to be the best, but also contemplating life after sports. KOBE BRYANT’S MUSE will feature the successes and challenges that have shaped Bryant’s professional life as well as inform audiences who are unaware of the lesser-known aspects of his career, while offering new insights to those who have followed him closely.
The documentary will examine Bryant’s storied basketball career, detailing his mentorships, allies and rivalries that have helped shape his 18-year tenure in the NBA. The ultimate competitor for nearly two decades, a 16-time All-Star and winner of five NBA championships, Bryant dominated professional basketball until a series of recent injuries threatened to abridge his career. With unbridled access to his daily experience, the film will reveal what makes Bryant tick and the life-long inspirations that have motivated him.
