Kobe Bryant will team with ESPN to produce a basketball analysis show called “Detail,” starring the longtime Lakers great and produced by his Granity Studios, ESPN announced Friday at the Television Critics Association Press Tour.

The 15-episode series will premiere in March on ESPN and provide “insights from one of the greatest players of all time,” the network said in a news release that included a synopsis of the series’ goal:

“In ‘Detail,’ viewers will experience unparalleled game observations from Bryant as if he were one of the players featured in an ESPN game played the day before. As one of this generation’s leading basketball minds, Bryant will provide a perspective aimed at helping young athletes, players and coaches see the game in a different way.

“Studying game film is how the best get better. It’s the university for a master’s degree in basketball,” Bryant said in a 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 air during the second half of the 2017-2018 NBA season, concluding with the NBA Finals. According to ESPN, the show is aimed at young athletes, current NBA players and coaches looking for deeper analysis of an athlete’s in-game execution.

This marks the third project for Bryant’s Granity Studios and ESPN. During the 2016-17 NBA season, Bryant’s company produced a limited run of “Canvas City” that aired on ESPN’s “NBA Countdown” show. This season, the studio has provided short packages called “MuseCage Basketball Network.” ESPN has aired two of its 10-episode commitment.
