Last Sunday night, Sanya Richards-Ross won the gold medal in the women’s 400-meter run; now the Olympic star is heading to TV. Deadline reports WEtv has picked up a pilot for a reality series starring Richards-Ross.
The TV pilot stems from a development deal WEtv had with unscripted production company Good Clean Fun (Tia & Tamera). It was shot in Austin before Richards-Ross left for London and offers an insider’s look at her rigorous training regime as well as her personal life.
Richards-Ross is married to two-time Super Bowl champion Aaron Ross who just signed a 3-year $15 million contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars. The reality series reveals the often intense rivalry between the hyper competitive couple.
The TV project also provides 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.
Ironically, Sanya and Aaron have been on WEtv before; their nuptials were featured on the channel’s show Platinum Weddings.
