· New 15-Episode Basketball Analysis Show Created, Written & Hosted by Five-Time NBA Champion Bryant to Air Throughout the 2018 NBA Playoffs and NBA Finals

· Special Premier Episode to Highlight 2009 Western Conference Finals Game 6

ESPN today announced that Detail, its new basketball analysis show in collaboration with five-time NBA Champion Kobe Bryant and his Granity Studios, is set to debut on Thursday, April 12, exclusively on ESPN+.

ESPN+ is the new direct-to-consumer subscription streaming service from Disney Direct-to-Consumer and International in partnership with ESPN. Launching on April 12, it will be available as an integrated part of a completely redesigned and reimagined ESPN App that will be the premier all-in-one digital sports platform for fans.

Detail, which is written, produced and hosted by the Academy Award-winning Bryant, will feature his high-level analysis and insights as he breaks down games throughout the 2018 NBA Playoffs, including the NBA Finals. Bryant will provide in-depth observations from the standpoint of a current NBA player in a game featured on ESPN or ABC.

The special premier edition of Detail (April 12) will feature Bryant breaking down one of the best games of his storied career - 2009 Western Conference Finals Game 6 - where his Lakers clinched their second consecutive NBA Finals berth by eliminating the Denver Nuggets. The second episode of Detail will be available on ESPN+ Sunday, April 15 - the day following a NBA Playoffs Round 1 Game 1 matchup.

Bryant will deliver multiple episodes of Detail during the first two rounds of the NBA Playoffs, leading into a heavier schedule of shows during the NBA Eastern Conference Finals (three) and the NBA Finals (up to seven). Every show is available on ESPN+. A more complete schedule will be available soon.

Segments from Detail will air on Get Up!, SportsCenter, The Jump, NBA Countdown, and across ESPN's digital and social media platforms.
