Tribeca Digital Studios and Dick’s Sporting Goods Films are producing a documentary following beach volleyball player Kerri Walsh Jennings on her quest to win a fourth consecutive gold medal at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
Gabe Spitzer will direct the doc, which begins production this month, on Walsh Jennings as she balances life as a mother of three while training with her new partner, April Ross.
Tribeca Digital Studios and Dick’s Sporting Goods Foundation won the outstanding sports documentary Emmy for “We Could Be King.”
Walsh Jennings and teammate Misty May-Treanor were the gold medalists in beach volleyball at the 2004, 2008, and 2012 Summer Olympics.
:Representing my country as an Olympic athlete is an honor I take seriously, but I am the most proud of being a mother, wife and role model to young athletes,” Walsh Jennings said. “I hope my story inspires viewers and provides them a glimpse of how sports have shaped my life.”
