Lifetime is aiming to rebrand the channel and bring more stories about powerful women to the network. In doing this, they are going to air the story of Serena Williams.
Not much is known about the project, but the tennis star is also executive producing a film for the network with her sister, Venus Williams, with the working title, Sister Dance. The film is supposed to be about the annual dance-off competition Serena hosts with Venus.
Serena was recently in the news for responding to some sexist comments about women in tennis and claiming that women have it easier in the sport. Serena, who has won 21 grand slams, and proven herself as the number one tennis player, refuted the comments.
It will be interesting to see what a Serena Williams biopic on Lifetime reveals about the tennis star.
