Exciting news for Serena Williams fans: the tennis GOAT just signed a first-look TV deal with Amazon, Variety reports, which will include a docuseries (!!!) about the legend herself and her life on and off the court. (A first-look deal means Amazon will get to see any project Serena produces before rival distributors.)
“I’m very excited to be partnering with Amazon Studios—they are developing some of the most inspiring and important content for a global audience,” Serena said. “I have a lot of stories I’m eager to tell, including a continuation of my own, and I look forward to sharing those with the world.” We’re *so* excited too, Serena!
Serena’s docuseries doesn’t yet have a name, BUT according to Variety, it will cover her “personal and professional life.” Serena will executive produce the series alongside her tennis coach Patrick Mouratoglou, Stuart Cabb, and Tony Pastor. The show will be produced by Plum Pictures and Goalhanger Films as well as Amazon Studios.

There’s no word yet on the other content Serena will create alongside her docuseries—and yet I’m already 100 percent confident I’ll be tuning in.
