The series will offer an unfiltered look at life inside the competitive sport of professional tennis through the perspective of the players and their teams.

The unnamed series will feature equal coverage of the men’s and women’s competitions on the tours and at the four Grand Slams in Melbourne, Paris, London and New York.

A release date has not been confirmed yet.

Through a historic collaboration that will take cameras behind the scenes of the two tours, the Australian Open, Roland-Garros, Wimbledon and the US Open, the series will also be the first sports program of its kind to provide an equal platform to the men’s and women’s competitors of the sport, in keeping with the equal stage they share throughout the year.
