Kobe to script, produce, host new basketball analysis TV showsports theScore
Kobe Bryant is going to share his Mamba Mentality on a new TV show.
His production company, Granity Studios, is teaming up with ESPN on "Detail," which will be written, produced, and hosted by the Los Angeles Lakers legend.
Regarded as one of the most brilliant basketball minds, Bryant will provide insight on an ESPN game played the previous night as if he were one of the players in the matchup, with the goal of helping young athletes, players, and coaches see the game differently.
"Studying game film is how the best get better. It's the university for a master's degree in basketball," the future Hall of Famer said in an ESPN statement.
"I learned how to study film from the best coaches of all time - Phil Jackson and Tex Winter. 'Detail' provides an opportunity to teach that skill to the next generation on large platform with ESPN."
"Detail" will premiere in March and air 15 episodes that will span the remainder of the regular season and the postseason. Bryant, 39, has also been working with ESPN on MuseCage Basketball Network this season.
The 18-time All-Star retired at the end of the 2015-16 campaign following an illustrious 20-year career with the Lakers. He finished with career averages of 25 points, 5.2 rebounds, 4.7 assists, and 1.4 steals, collecting five championships, two Finals MVPs, two scoring titles, and the 2008 MVP.
