The show is based on San Francisco police investigators trying to balance their personal lives with the demands of working some of the city’s toughest streets. Williams plays a young woman, Jennifer Davis, who is reunited with her family after missing for almost 20 years. In the episode a man is found dead in the Davis’ neighborhood. As the pieces of the investigation come together, the Division discovers the dead man was part of a scheme to defraud the Davis family.
Kelly Goode, Senior Vice President, Programming says, “Lifetime is proud to welcome Serena to ‘The Division.’ We think this is an exciting role for her and an opportunity for our audience to see this unbelievable athlete in a new light.” While tennis remains her first love, Serena also enjoys acting. She has appeared on “The Simpsons,” “My Wife and Kids,” “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” and is currently preparing to make her feature film debut in “Beauty Shop.”
