Discovery Plus Inspires Indian Audiences With Emmy Nominated Sports Docu-series Being Serena
News Desk, News Nation 360 : Discovery Plus, India’s first aggregated real-life entertainment streaming app, hits an ace with its latest Emmy nominated sports docu-series that follows pivotal moments in the life of former world No. 1 Tennis champion, Serena Williams. Titled Being Serena, the five-episode documentary series produced by HBO Sports and IMG’s Original Content, showcases game-changing moments in her professional and personal life, tracking her pregnancy, motherhood, comeback and more. The India-exclusive launch of this unique, first-person account starts November 17, thus further expanding the range of sports offerings on Discovery Plus. Speaking on the occasion, the all-time great women’s singles tennis player, Serena Williams said that Being Serena is very close to her heart – it captured her life during some of the most unforgettable and challenging moments in a really honest way. For her, Being Serena is a tribute to all of the women who have gotten back to work – or in her case back on the court – after becoming a mother. She is excited that her fans in India will have a chance to see her story. Serena Williams’ success story goes well beyond her 23 singles women’s grand slam titles, 39 grand slams overall and four Olympic Gold Medals. Since her return to the court after embracing motherhood, Serena rose to dominance once again, qualifying for four grand slam finals between 2018 and 2019. While not serving in the court, Serena supports minorities and women by funding their businesses through her VC Serena Ventures.
