Your webseries Pick N Roll - in a few words, what is it about?

 

Pick N Roll is about Jerome Jenkins, a former UCLA hoop phenom and his journey to rebound from injury and secure a roster spot on the Los Angeles Lakers.

 

A few words about Pick N Roll's headwriter Tanner Grover, and what's your collaboration like?

 

Tanner and I work hand-in-hand to create compelling storylines and put our main characters in constant emotional conflict.

 

How was the series conceived in the first place?

 

I'm a film publicist and Tanner is one of my screenwriter clients. He brought an initial idea called Longshots to the table and we worked together to formulate the Entourage elements of Pick N Roll by using Hollywood as the exciting backdrop.

 

With Pick N Roll being about basketball - is that a sport you're personally fond of, and how does your own experience in sports come into the mix?

 

I was captain of my basketball team in high school and it has been a sport I have used through the years as a great sense of escapism. It's such a creative and challenging endeavor because it requires a diversity of physical skills. It has been awe-inspiring to get on the radar screen of elite sports broadcasting channels like ESPN and Fox Sports Radio.

 

As far as I know, Pick N Roll is not based on a true story as such - but I suppose with your past in sports journalism, you must have heard hundreds of anecdotes that found their way into the series. Am I at all correct in that assumption?

 

I come from a journalism background but, indeed, an athlete suffering a major injury that spawns doubt in his future is a commonality that many people can relate to.

 

How would you describe your directorial approach to the subject at hand?

 

I approach the material from a real organic and raw place and encourage my actors to be as authentic and believable as possible by keeping the set loose and open to creative collaboration.

 

Patrick Jemerigbe

A few words about your lead Patrick Jemerigbe, and what made him perfect for the role?

 

Patrick has a similar background to Jerome as he suffered a substantial football injury which caused him to refocus his passions. He brought the legit hoop skills to the table and his extreme likability as a lead allows us to build unique storylines around him.

 

A few words about the rest of your cast and crew, and what can you tell us about the on-set atmosphere?

 

We've created an on-set family and the cast and crew have gone to battle for the project. I have been utterly impressed with everyone's professionalism and focus on the goal - which is creating entertaining content.

 

Why have you chosen the webseries format to tell your story, and is Pick N Roll intended as an open-ended series or are you working towards a pre-set finale?

 

The narrative of Pick N Roll lended itself to that short webseries format, and it has been a productive way for us to slowly build our fanbase. Our appeal is growing on a daily basis and we have a handful of top-notch scripts in the pipeline for future episodes so we are going to see how it all plays out.

 

What can you tell us about critical and audience reception so far?

 

The overall response has been overwhelmingly positive and I receive emails from all over the country inquiring about when the next episode will be online.

 

The $64-question of course: Where can Pick N Roll be seen?

 

You can watch the entire season of Pick N Roll here - www.youtube.com/picknrolltheseries.

 

What can you tell us about your filmwork prior to Pick N Roll?

 

I've made a handful of festival short films, and my last feature Roid Rage has been screened at an assortment of major showcases.

 

Any future projects you'd like to talk about?
