    In an announcement from the studio, Serena said she was “excited” to be partnering with Amazon for the TV deal, and said she had a lot of stories she’s “eager to tell”.

    She said: “I’m very excited to be partnering with Amazon Studios – 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.”

    Whilst Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios, hailed the sporting superstar as “one of the most inspiring women of her generation”.

    She added: “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. 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.”

    The untitled series is ex ecutive produced by Serena, Patrick Mouratoglou, Stuart Cabb, and Tony Pastor, and as of the time of writing there is no release date confirmed for the project.
