Conversations | Michelle Major


On the latest episode of Conversations, we’ll sit down with Venus and Serena co-director, Michelle Major about her engrossing documentary and her time spent with the tennis legends.

Ever since Venus and Serena Williams started playing in tennis tournaments, they’ve provoked strong reactions – from awe and admiration to suspicion and resentment. They’ve been winning championships for over a decade, pushing the limits of longevity in such a demanding sport. How long can they last?

Major and fellow co-director Maiken Baird give the audience unprecedented access into their lives of Venus and Serena during the most intimidating year of their career. Over the course of 2011, Venus grappled with an energy-sapping autoimmune disease while Serena battled back from a life-threatening pulmonary embolism. Neither Venus nor Serena let their adversities hold them back. They drew their greatest strength from each other.

We’ll have all that and more on the next episode of Conversations beginning at 2pm!
