Spike Lee’s documentary Kobe Doin’ Work, about Kobe Bryant, will premiere as part of an ESPN sports film sidebar at Tribeca.

Featuring a score by Bruce Hornsby, “Kobe” was shot during last year’s NBA playoffs when Lee and cinematographer Matthew Libatique spent a day with the Lakers standout [don’t exhaust yourself with too much work there, Spike]. Following its Tribeca bow, “Kobe” will be televised May 16 on ESPN. [THR]

Then in June, it will air on the Oxygen Network between Tyson and Roman Polanski as part of RapeFest 2K9.
