The tandem of Facebook and Religion of Sports has announced a new Facebook Watch Original docuseries starring superstar gymnast Simone Biles, titled Simone vs Herself.
The new series is directed by Gotham Chopra and will air on Facebook Watch this summer. Simone vs Herself will follow the journey of Biles as she continues to challenge herself as a gymnast.
The 19-time World Champion and four-time Olympic gold medalist will highlight the peaks left to scale while balancing adversity such as the postponed Olympics and the challenges of success.
“My gymnastics career has been filled with a lot of ups and downs despite what a lot of people may think, and, in a lot of ways, my career has felt like I’ve been trying to prove myself to others,” Biles said of the show’s premise. “My mom has always encouraged me to be the ‘best Simone I can be’ and I now have a true appreciation for what that really means, which is one of the big reasons I wanted to come back for Tokyo. I want to challenge myself to be the best Simone I can be for me and, no matter the outcome, share with my fans the process and approach I am taking along the way in the hope that it may help inspire others to be the best version of themselves too.”
