“Discovering Routes” Executive Producer Keesa Ocampo leads the team that is up against veteran cable and satellite channels like USA, AMC, Lifetime, History and even NBA Digital. Ocampo shares that “It’s a humbling honor for the collective talent of our team to stand alongside these network giants, who at one point, also started small but with big dreams. That’s where I think we are. We’re all storytellers and while telling each one is a big responsibility we share, this moment teaches us that as content creators, the learning never stops.”
