Score! Amazon has announced they're teaming up with tennis star Serena Williams to create scripted and unscripted projects for their streaming service.

While the athlete may only be a producer on some projects, she'll also star in her own docuseries that will give fans a peek into her career as well as her home life.

"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 shared.

Williams hinted at her first-look deal when she chatted with Creed star Michael B. Jordan during a virtual Vanity Fair event.

"We're working on to create some scripted and non-scripted stuff and products. And just bring really interesting stories that really touch the heart to the screen," she revealed. "I'm really excited about it. We're already looking at some really feel good moments. Things to produce and to start with."

The superstar's first five-part docuseries, Being Serena, aired on HBO in 2018, but this time around, it will be "through my eyes and through my lens," she shared, adding she'll be an executive producer of the work.

"I'm a little nervous," she admitted. "But I feel like it's gonna be really, really fun. I hope to bring really special stories to film and to people's homes."

At the moment, there's no release date, but Amazon is more than ready to get the ball rolling.

"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, stated.

"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," she concluded.

Here's hoping that Williams will allow her and husband Alexis Ohanian's adorable 3-year-old daughter, Alexis "Olympia," to get some time in front of the cameras!
