Muted, Black & White First Trailer for Showtime's Never-Before-Seen Portrait 'Kobe Bryant's Muse'

Los Angeles Laker star Kobe Bryant prepares for his
return to the NBA next season, Showtime is set to air the original
documentary film “Kobe Bryant’s Muse,” which is described as an in-depth look into the life,
inspirations and challenges facing one of professional sports most visible figures.

The feature-length documentary
is directed by Gotham Chopra (“Decoding Deepak,” and ESPN’s 30 For 30
film, “The Little Master”). It will air this fall on the Showtime network.

“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.”

“As a lifelong Boston Celtics fan, never did I imagine I would
collaborate with Laker great Kobe Bryant,” said Gotham Chopra. “Kobe’s
quest for greatness transcends rivalries and I’m excited by his and Showtime’s willingness to go down this rabbit hole together. I’m
confident audiences will be intrigued by what comes out the other side.”

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. 

“Kobe Bryant’s Muse” is executive produced by Kobe Bryant and Gotham Chopra in association with Mamba Media.

Bryant was also at the center of “Kobe Doin’ Work,” the 2009 documentary film directed by Spike Lee, which focused on the NBA star during one day of the 2007–08 Los Angeles Lakers season. Bryant granted Spike and 30 cameras unprecedented access to his life for one day. It premiered on ESPN on May 16, 2009.

Personally,I do not care for this individual whether he return back to the NBA or not. I don't believe that he would be as missed by most Black American than those type that he lie down with. He and many other Black celebrities, until they actually get upon their feet and of course, marry one of a different color but still want black America to support them. Especiaqlly,when he is known for "spousal abuse". Who cares then? Tis person does not reach back and give back to those of color, but fuind it in his heart to support that female's family and businesses.

He's in denial because I don't believe that racism does not exist in Orange County. The Kobe and all of you wealthy moguls who are in denial; why is the unempkoyment rate and homeless rates are the highest for African Americans?

Please don't say because they qualifiy that is a lie, they have those who lie and cheat for their own kind. Kobe you practice Culture Genocide. It's all about the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$. And, rumors are you paying a orice and when you do divorce she will have most of your $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$. So if Kobe BRYANT NEVEER EVER WORK AGAIN WHO CARES.

What else new!!!
