‘I’m looking forward to sharing my stories with the world,’ says Serena Williams

Serena Williams has joined forces with Amazon Studios to create a number of planned TV programmes about her personal and professional life.

Williams, who has been at top of tennis for over twenty years, is the most successful singles player, male or female, in the Open Era with 23 Grand Slam titles to her name.

Her success has not been restricted to her on-court career though, an outspoken voice on gender and race equality, Williams is known for her love of fashion and has her own fashion and nail range, while also running the Serena Williams Foundation as one of her many charitable activities.

The docuseries will be executive produced by Serena Williams herself, her coach Patrick Mouratoglou, Stuart Cabb and Tony Pastor and she said she’s very excited about the project.

“I’m very excited to be partnering with Amazon Studios,” said Serena Williams.

“They are developing some of the most inspiring and important content for a global audience.

“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.”
