23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams will be seen in an upcoming HBO documentary series called Being Serena. The trailer for the docuseries was released on Monday.

Deadline reports that Being Serena will capture the story of the tennis star's comeback after her marriage to Reddit co-founder Alex Ohanian and the birth of her daughter Alexis Olympia.

Serena had previously revealed some of the complications she had after giving birth and the series will offer her thoughts on becoming a mother as she looks to find her way back to the sport she loves — and has dominated over the last sixteen years or more.

The docuseries will also further explore her entrepreneurial roles, as an investor and a philanthropist.

Peter Nelson, executive vice president of HBO Sports, said in a statement, “Even though she has been in the spotlight since her teenage years, Serena continues to capture the imagination.”

“Serena Williams is a force unlike any other,” said Mark Shapiro, Co-President of WME and IMG. “Her entire life is one of the hero’s journey, and it has been a privilege to work with her as she enters this next phase.

Being Serena is produced by HBO in partnership with IMG’s Original Content group. It will comprise five 30-minute installments that will air on HBO and its streaming platforms, starting 2 May.
