Sep 9, 2016  •  Post A Comment

A new series in the works at Amazon will track the exploits of tennis star Novak Djokovic, the top player on the men’s circuit.

Variety reports that Djokovic sold the documentary series to the streaming service. The project, which has the working title “Novak,” follows the 12-time Grand Slam winner on and off the court over the course of the 2017 season.

“The show might even include the possibility that the Serbian powerhouse will win the four major tennis tournaments in a calendar year — a feat that hasn’t been accomplished in the men’s game in nearly 50 years — but an Amazon rep said the production schedule is in flux and may wrap before the U.S. Open is completed next year,” Variety reports.

The show will premiere exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in the U.S., U.K., Germany, Austria and Japan, with the premiere date yet to be determined.

In a statement, Djokovic said: “My fans have been suffering and celebrating with me from the very beginning of my career on the tennis courts. Now I want to share with them all my daily life and what’s important to me — my values, my beliefs, and my habits — and also introduce to them all the amazing people that are always next to me.”
