WE tv announced Friday it has given the green light to Glam & Gold, a docu-series on the life of Olympic Gold Medalist Sanya Richards-Ross and her husband, NFL star Aaron Ross. Production is currently underway in Austin & Jacksonville.
Sanya said: “I am absolutely thrilled to have this opportunity to partner with WE tv and Good Clean Fun to share the adventure that is my life. My quest for Olympic gold wouldn’t have been possible without my family, who is behind me all the way! I am so looking forward to sharing our journey to grow our businesses and expand my career all while I try to keep my marriage first — something women can truly identify with.”
Each hour-long episode of the docu-series follows the unstoppable Sanya as she juggles appearances, runs a business, and balances life with Aaron and her family. Sanya is building an empire and the team behind her is made up completely of family — including mom, Sharon, acting as her agent; dad, Archie, who serves as her manager; sister, Shari, who is her business partner in The Hair Clinic, an Austin hair salon that Sanya funds and Shari runs; and, her cousin, Yolandae, who serves as both Sanya’s publicist and stylist. Sanya moves at a fast pace, running circles around everyone in her path, and her family is nearly out of breath as they help her cross the perpetual finish line.
The series will consist of six, one-hour episodes to premiere this summer.
