In the Arena: New Serena Williams Docuseries in the Works

By Chris Oddo | @TheFanChild | Tuesday May 16, 2023

Legend Serena Williams will soon be in the spotlight once again.

The 23-time major champion announced that production has started on the new ESPN series In the Arena: Serena Williams.

“Following the success of the Emmy-winning Man in the Arena: Tom Brady, Serena’s expansion of the franchise will be a multi-part series that provides the most complete, intimate, and compelling account of her legendary career, featuring firsthand perspective from Serena and key figures throughout her life.

Several of Serena’s most significant Grand Slam tournaments and defining personal milestones are examined and decoded in detail. The series juxtaposes Serena’s spectacular on-court achievements and cultural impact with dramatic personal challenges. Through it all, Serena fights to maintain her place atop the tennis world while juggling the transformational experience of starting a family.”

According to ESPN, the series will be directed by Gotham Chopra and co-produced by ESPN, Religion of Sports, Tom Brady’s 199 Productions, and Williams and Caroline Currier’s Nine Two Six Productions.

A release date is expected to be announced soon.
