However, in the new documentary “Basketball County: In the Water,” area natives and basketball stars such as Kevin Durant, Victor Oladipo and Quinn Cook (all of whom served as executive producers) tell a story that emphasizes the immense athletic talent that emerges from Prince George’s County.
“[Audiences are] going to find some of the greatest basketball moments were from people from Prince George’s County,” Jenkins said confidently.
“While I was working on the film ‘Sinners Wanted,’ I partnered with a guy by the name of John Beckham- he is an amazing guy, also from Prince George’s County, and we came together and created this project called ‘Basketball County: In the Water.’
Like Jenkins’ success, Prince George’s being a “basketball County,” did not happen overnight.
While a lot of anecdotes had to be cut from the film, Jenkins said he hopes “Basketball County: In the Water,” inspires other local filmmakers and storytellers as well as elevates the reputation of Prince George’s County.
