"Our summer programming lineup is reflective of today's families and focuses on real stories, real families, real heart. We just finished 1Q with double digit increases and had our best total day deliveries in key demos for January, February and March. We look forward to maintaining this momentum through the summer," said ABC Family president Paul Lee.

The series featuring Venus and Serena will take an in-depth and off-court look at the fascinating, successful lives of professional tennis sisters, focusing on their other passions outside of tennis and time spent with family and friends.

Venus & Serena: For Real was filmed over a period of six-weeks, before Venus won the Wimbledon championship recently.

The show will delve into questions like what it is like to lead the lifestyle of tennis pros and also deal with the glamour of being celebrities?

Comprising six episodes, the reality show will follow these two young women coming of age, as they find their place in the world outside of tennis. Viewers can see them interacting with their family and friends and also find out what they do for fun.

The series has been executive produced by Fernando Hernandez (Till Death Do Us Part: Carmen + Dave) and Robert Pura.

The 25-year-old Venus, currently ranked ninth in the world, has won five grand slam tournaments, including the Wimbledon women's finals. Serena (23), on the other hand has won seven grand slam titles.
