Serena Williams – Television Script Writer

Speaking at a press conference after beating Australia’s Jarmila Groth at Wimbledon on Wednesday, Serena Williams talked about how she is an avid TV watcher, so much so that she is in the midst of writing a TV script.

She calls Desperate Housewives, Dexter, Sex and the City and Family Guy as some of her favorite shows.

She would love to see her name rolling through the credits on a future TV show and said:

“You’ll be excited to know I wrote three parts already. I was going to do it (Tuesday), but I started watching Dexter and I got a little sidetracked. You know what, today’s a good day. I can write. For me it’s really about being in the mood, and how I’m feeling.”

Her sister Venus is the one who got her started, when she gave her a book on how to write scripts and Serena is said to be focusing on television. Her agent offered up some advice as well, telling her to “write down your ideas”.

“I’ve always been a writer, like a storyteller writer, not exactly a scriptwriter. That’s what I was told to do, just write my story, just the first episode to get them an idea.”
