That’s right, the professional tennis player has signed a first-look TV deal, according to Variety. This means that Williams will develop several future shows with Amazon, including an untitled docuseries about her personal life and career.

“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,” Williams said. “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.”

The documentary doesn’t have an official title yet, but according to the outlet, Williams will serve as an executive producer alongside Stuart Cabb, Tony Pastor and her tennis coach, Patrick Mouratoglou.

“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 (head of Amazon Studios) said. “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.”
