Serena will take a look at the tennis champion and Olympic gold winner’s life on and off the court, and will include interviews with Williams’s family, friends, and competitors. The feature-length documentary, shot cinema verité style and directed by Ryan White, will also focus on her quest last year to achieve the elusive Serena Slam.
“2015 was a defining time in my life and career,” Williams said. “I think my story will be relatable to audiences whether you love tennis or not. It’s a story of perseverance, failure, and triumph. It’s the most intimate I’ve ever allowed myself to be on film.”
