For those of you who happen to be big fans of Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant, then this news might be right up your alley.
The fine folks over at Showtime have decided to greenlight a documentary project around Kobe’s life and times tentatively called, “Kobe Bryant’s Muse”.
To go more in-depth on the project, we head to TVByTheNumbers for a look at parts of the press release:
“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,” said Stephen Espinoza, Executive Vice President and General Manager, SHOWTIME Sports®. “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.”
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.
No word yet on a release date for the project but it does sound quite interesting.
