EXCLUSIVE: WE tv has greenlighted Glam & Gold, a docu-series starring Olympic gold medalist Sanya Richards-Ross and her husband, NFL star Aaron Ross. The network has ordered six hourlong episodes to premiere this summer. Filming on the series has begun in Austin and Jacksonville. Glam & Gold joins WE tv’s lineup of African American-starring shows including Braxton Family Values, Mary Mary, Tamar & Vince and L.A. Hair.

Glam & Gold chronicles the often intense rivalry between the hyper competitive couple who met in college — four-time gold medalist Richards-Ross, who won two golds in London last summer, and her husband, a two-time Super Bowl champion who signed a three-year, $15 million contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars last year. Each episode follows Sanya as she juggles appearances, runs a business, and balances life with Aaron and her own family who make up her team including mom Sharon, acting as her agent; dad, Archie, who serves as her manager; her 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 Sanya’s publicist and stylist.
