UPPER MARLBORO, MD – Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) high school sports series PG13 returns for season six this week as scholar-athletes return to the playing field after two seasons impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

A joint venture between PGCPS and Visionary Media Productions, PG13 showcases scholar-athletes, coaches, families and school communities in 13 episodes, beginning with preseason preparations and culminating with the playoffs. Each episode portrays multidimensional stories, shot in a cinematic style, in four- to seven-minute story arcs. 

Season six premieres on Monday, Sept. 13 with a focus on Dr. Henry A. Wise High School as they look to return to their championship perch, and Charles Herbert Flowers High School which has established itself as Wise's closest rival. 

“As in previous seasons, we will go beyond the field for an inside look at the human element of the scholar-athlete’s journey,” said Dave Owens, CEO of Visionary Media Productions. “Following a challenging year, we look forward to showcasing academics and athletics on the same stage.”

This season, tune in Mondays as we take you on and off the field with teams, coaches, players, fans and families. All 13 episodes will be broadcast on PGCPS social media channels, the PGCPS website and PGCPS-TV 96 (Comcast) and 38 (Verizon).
