HBO will premiere a five-party documentary series about Serena Williams on May 2. According to HuffPost, Being Serena "will not only delve into Williams’ career, but will also chronicle her 2017 marriage to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian and the birth of her first child, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr."
“When I realized that I was pregnant I was like, ‘Oh my God. How am I going to play?’” Williams says in the teaser trailer for the series, seen above. “I put so much pressure on myself. I want to make sure that I’m the best.”
The series will also explore her entrepreneurial roles, as an investor and a philanthropist.
“HBO is honored to work with Serena Williams on such a personal project,” Peter Nelson, executive vice president, HBO Sports, said in a statement to HuffPost. “Even though she has been in the spotlight since her teenage years, Serena continues to capture the imagination.”
