Friday, August 23, 2013: Venus and Serena

The Williams sisters are just as fascinating to watch on the court as they are off, as proven by this Showtime documentary chronicling a year in the life of the tennis pros. In fact, even if you're not a fan of the sport, you'll be compelled by how Venus and Serena deal with the challenges in their personal lives.

Filmed over the course of a trying 2011, this two-hour special shows the health challenges that the pair faced (Venus with autoimmune disease and Serena suffering a pulmonary embolism) and how they – for lack of a better term – got the ball back in their court. Simply put, you'll pretty much be in awe of the fierce, fearless sisters.

Venus and Serena premieres at 9 PM on Showtime. Lifetime has another melodramatic TV movie join its vast collection with Forever 16 at 8 PM and Andy Richter joins the ongoing list celebrity guest visitors to IFC's Comedy Bang! Bang! at 10 PM.
