Kobe Bryant's Final Season with the Lakers Might Get a Documentary Series Like 'The Last Dance'

The Last Dance, the limited documentary series that was a major hit for ESPN and focused on the Chicago Bulls‘ 1997–98 season, and there might be another documentary like that focused on the late Kobe Bryant.

ESPN revealed today that the documentary would be focused on his last season on the Lakers team.

The site adds that there were at least six personal camera crews there while his last season was going on and also filmed Kobe’s time off the court as well.

“They had unprecedented and, by far, greater access than anyone else ever,” John Black, who ran the Lakers public relations department for 27 years, shared. “We certainly allowed them to do everything we could within what the league would allow, and sometimes, with a wink and look-the-other way, allowed them even more.”

There are no immediate plans to release the documentary at this time, or an idea of when it would air at all.

Kobe and his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, passed away in January after a helicopter crash.
