Serena Williams is winning big off of the tennis court his month. The tennis champion has just locked in a first-look deal with Amazon. Through the deal, Williams is expected to produce a docuseries about herself as well as scripted and unscripted content for their streaming platform, Amazon Prime Video.
“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.”
This is far from the only business move that Williams has made off of the tennis court as of late. The 23-time Grand Slam Champion has launched her own clothing line and bought a piece of a professional soccer team in Los Angeles. Not to mention, she’s invested heavily into the Miami Dolphins and the UFC. Her deal with Amazon continues to set her up for an extremely successful run whenever she decides to walk away from the game of tennis for good.
“Serena has transformed her sport and become one of the most inspiring athletes, entrepreneurs and women of her generation, admired not only for her unmatched prowess on the court but for her dedication to advocacy as well,” Jennifer Salke of Amazon Studios stated.
“We’re incredibly excited to share her journey in this new series, and to work with her to create new original content for our Prime Video customers worldwide.”
