The intimate first-person show delves into her landmark career of dominating the tennis courts to launching a cosmetics line, starting a family and her expanding role as a businesswoman and investor in the worlds of tech, fashion, fitness and philanthropy.
The snippet of Being Serena shows scenes from her glamorous wedding where she says her guests, including Beyoncé, Eva Longoria and La La Anthony, were genuinely happy for her and that made her happy.
Serena and husband Alexis Ohanian shared the most beautiful vows at their wedding in a teary moment. “You are already my queen and we already have our princess, but today I am officially pledging myself to you and our family, forever,” Alexis vowed.
In the minute-and-a-half-long trailer, the tennis superstar grapples with the fear and joy she felt from winning a Grand Slam Title while pregnant with her daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. Her sister Venus Williams also jokes in the trailer about “wanting a rematch” against her younger sibling, since the cards were dealt unevenly.
“It was two against one,” she laughs.
“I’ve always envisioned myself as a mom,” Serena says about her new family with husband Alexis Ohanian. “But it happened so unexpectedly.”
To conclude the trailer, Williams muses a few parting words of wisdom, which could hint at something greater for the sports icon.
