Serena Williams continues to expand her business portfolio after retiring from tennis. In addition to her flourishing venture capital fund, the tennis champion is also launching a new multimedia production company.
Williams’ 926 Productions was announced on Monday along with a first-look TV deal at Amazon Studios, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Staying true to her longtime brand of women’s empowerment, Williams will have Caroline Currier, former vice president of Grand Electric, serving as the president of the production company that’s aimed at amplifying women and diverse storytellers.
The Williams sisters got their feet wet by producing their family biopic King Richard with their older sister, Isha Price. The film about their father garnered six Academy Award nominations, including best picture, with Will Smith winning for best actor. – Steve Sijenyi
