OETA Explores OKC’s Thunder Boom

About - Press Releases

Thursday February 14 at 7 p.m., OETA-The Oklahoma Network’s Emmy Award-winning documentary series STATELINE explores the impact the Oklahoma City Thunder basketball franchise has had on business, state pride and Oklahoma’s state image.

A state once divided into red and orange now radiates Thunder blue. The team's all-star roster led by Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, their subsequent rise in the NBA standings and an appearance in the finals is the most visible facet of Oklahoma City’s arrival on the world stage.

It’s all sparked by the Thunder fans’ passionate support, and fueled by the team’s commitment to their new home. With an obvious boost to the state economy and the satisfaction of being perceived as a growing, unified community on the way up, STATELINE reveals how Oklahoma is enjoying this “Thunder Boom.”

Now in its 14th season, Stateline is a regularly scheduled documentary series produced by OETA-The Oklahoma Network that focuses on the issues and concerns of all Oklahomans. The Emmy Award-winning series produces documentaries with an Oklahoma focus. Recent documentaries include a look into the State Capitol’s infrastructure needs, the consequences of statewide drought and Oklahoma’s career tech system.
