Olympian Richards-Ross Set for WEtv Reality Series
Deadline.com reports that gold-medal Olympian Sanya Richards-Ross will appear in a pilot for her own reality series for WEtv. The TV pilot was developed between WE and Good Clean Fun, the unscripted Production Company behind Style's Tia & Tamera. It was filmed in Austin, Texas prior to the London games.
Richards-Ross earned two gold-medals for relays in the 2004 and 2008 Olympic games as well as a bronze medal for an individual event at the Beijing Olympics. The athlete picked up another gold medal on Sunday in the women's 400-meter race.
According to the report, the pilot will offer "an insider’s look at her rigorous training regime as well as her personal life," as well as "a behind-the-scenes look at Richard-Ross’ inner circle that includes her mother Sharon acting as her agent, her father Archie working as her manager and her sister Shari as her business partner."
Richards-Ross is married to two-time Super Bowl winner Aaron Ross, who himself recently inked a 3-year $15 million contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars. The reality series will unveil the "often intense rivalry between the hyper competitive couple." The couple's wedding plans were recently featured on WE's Platinum Weddings.
