Gotham Chopra

Filmmaker, The Religion of Sports

Gotham Chopra is a filmmaker, author, and entrepreneur. His recent documentary on NBA superstar Kobe Bryant entitled Kobe Bryant’s Muse was the highest performing sports documentary ever on the Showtime Network. Within weeks his feature documentary on Indian cricket superstar Sachin Tendulkar entitled The Little Master ran on ESPN as part of their award winning ’30 for 30’ film franchise. His award winning 2012 documentary Decoding Deepak about his father Deepak Chopra is available on Netflix. And his latest works on NY Giants WR Victor Cruz (I am Giant) aired in October 2015 on Showtime and Red Sox icon David Ortiz (The Last Walk Off) on ESPN during the summer of 2016. Gotham is also a contributing Executive Producer to LeBron James’ digital platform Uninterrupted.

Prior to his feature doc work, Gotham was an award winning journalist reporting from countless warzones and interviewing a wide range of Global leaders – from President Clinton to the His Holiness the Dalai Lama. He was integrally involved in the formation of Current TV, co-founded by former Vice-President Al Gore which launched in 2005.

Gotham’s varied experience in journalism, publishing, and entertainment had him identified by Newsweek Magazine as one of the “most powerful and influential” South Asians worth watching. He blogs regularly at www.intent.com which he co-founded” as well as www.huffingtonpost.com. Contrary to his “spiritual upbringing,” he lives and dies by his hometown Boston sports teams, which he actually thinks in pretty spiritual and is converting into a multimedia brand called The Religion of Sports which will launch as a 6-part docu-series on Directv’s Audience Network in November 2016.
