Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant will be the focus of a documentary project titled: “Kobe Bryant’s Muse”; airing on Showtime this coming fall, according to a report published by the LA Times.
The Gotham Chopra directed feature-length film will focus on Bryant’s personal life, as well as his inspirations and challenges both on and off the court.
“This is about what has inspired me in my life and career,” Bryant said during an appearance at the Television Critics Assn. “It’s about looking forward to the challenge of what the next stage will be.”
Bryant, 35 will also be one of the executive producers, along with Chopra. In addition to producing the film, Kobe is looking to also produce on the court. He seems to be the Lakers only hope of returning to relevance in the loaded Western conference. Their inability to land any keynote free agents will definitely not help the cause either.
The return of Bryant will either make for one of the most prolific years the Lakers have had in the last couple of seasons, or (more likely) they will start out hot and the wear and tear of the season will catch up to them and they will drift down the win column as the regular season wraps up. Either way it should be interesting.
