Tennis phenom and new mom Serena Williams will get personal in a five-part HBO documentary series, Being Serena.

“When I realized I was pregnant, I was like, ‘Oh, my god, how am I going to play?'” Serena says in the sneak peek trailer. “I put so much pressure on myself; I want to make sure I’m the best.”

The program is a collaboration between HBO Sports and IMG’s Original Content Group, according to Variety. The docuseries will follow Serena through her pregnancy, motherhood, marriage and how those pivotal moments transformed her life and career.

“HBO is honored to work with Serena Williams on such a personal project,” said Peter Nelson, executive vice president, HBO Sports. “Even though she has been in the spotlight since her teenage years, Serena continues to capture the imagination. With our partners at IMG, we look forward to giving viewers a revealing, behind-the-scenes portrait of her life on and off the court.”

Being Serena premieres at 10 p.m. on May 2 exclusively on HBO and all of its streaming platforms.
