Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E Sports) – A documentary called “Kobe Bryant’s Muse” detailing the life and career of the Lakers superstar is currently in the works and will air this fall on Showtime.
Bryant has granted the production access to his daily life, private training sessions and business meetings.
He previously resisted projects that demand an all-access look into his life, but with his career threatened by an Achilles injury and his time in the NBA soon coming to an end, he changed his mind.
“I have always had ideas and always had a vision of where I wanted to go, going back to 2000, but they are just ideas,”
Bryant said. “Now, once the Achilles injury took place, I’m sitting at home for months not moving, a couple things set in.
One is that there is only so many ‘Modern Family’ episodes a person can watch. And then two, what do I do now?”
The feature-length documentary is produced by Bryant and director Gotham Chopra.
“As a lifelong Boston Celtics fan, never did I imagine I would collaborate with Laker great Kobe Bryant,” Chopra said in a statement. “Kobe’s quest for greatness transcends rivalries and I’m excited by his and Showtime’s willingness to go down this rabbit hole together.”
