Next year Amazon Prime will take us along on Djokovic’s quest with a reality series — or docu-series — that puts viewers up close and personal with the accomplished, interesting, always engaging man.
“Novak” — as the series is called for now — will track the Serbian superstar throughout the 2017 season.
