Check Out the Trailer for the New HBO Docu-Series ‘Being Serena’

A few weeks back, it was reported that tennis star Serena Williams will be releasing a docu-series with HBO. Now, the cable network has unveiled the trailer for the docu-series Being Serena. The five-part series will not only chronicle her journey back to the tennis court, but also give us a look into her life as a new mom and her marriage to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian.

In the minute-and- a-half trailer, Williams details the gripping story about earning a Grand Slam title while pregnant with daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. “I was like, ‘How am I going to get through this?” Serena said in the clip. Her sister Venus Williams jokes about wanting a rematch being that Serena had an unfair advantage. “It was two against one,” she laughed.

Serena also delved into the topic of motherhood and starting a new family with her husband. “I’ve always envisioned myself as a mom,” she said. “But it happened so unexpectedly.” According to the Huffington Post, Being Serena will also focus on the tennis star’s life as a businesswoman, investor in technology, fitness and fashion and philanthropy.

“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 the Huffington Post. “Even though she has been in the spotlight since her teenage years, Serena continues to capture the imagination.”

The trailer ends with Williams sharing some words of wisdom, “Without fear, without doubt, without discomfort, what is there for a person to overcome?”

The first episode of the five-part series will premiere May 2nd on HBO.
