Serena Williams / Wonder Woman Front Action Packed Mashup Ad For DIRECTV Streaming Service

DirecTV Serena Williams Wonder Woman 1

On 26 August a new campaign called ‘Get Your TV Together’ features tennis super star Serena Williams in a mash up with iconic action films to bring to life DIRECTV’s ‘best of both worlds’ unique selling point – live and on-demand entertainment.


Timed to leverage spiking tennis interest around the 2021 US Open and champion DIRECTV’s expanded offering which now includes all of AT&T’s previously held US video assets, the campaign runs across social platforms, national and connected TV with social, digital, OTT, OOH, radio, an interactive game, and a comic book component and acts as a call to consumers to un-complicate their entertainment lives.


Created by agency TBWA\Chiat\Day LA and helmed by Director Traktor and Stink, the campaign is themed around today’s fragmented consumer experience where people are faced with either having to sacrifice either their live viewing experience or spend time browsing on-demand without enjoying their content.


Led by a hero commercial titled ‘Get Your TV Together: Wonder Featuring Serena Williams’, each creative element aims to connect with fans in a new way to pay off the best of live and on-demand and encourages viewers to find out more online at



“We’re excited to introduce DIRECTV STREAM, bringing together the best of Live TV and On-Demand content like never seen before,” commented DIRECTV chief marketing officer Vince Torres. “The TV campaign is a call to consumers to un-complicate their entertainment lives, and many of the other campaign elements are designed to connect with fans in a new and fun way to showcase the best of Live and On-Demand.”


“I’m always juggling my priorities as a mom, athlete and designer so I am a big fan of products like DIRECTV STREAM that help make my life more simple,” added Serena Williams in the campaign PR. “I had so much fun playing Wonder Woman for this exciting campaign that showcases the uncomplicated and simplified TV experience of DIRECTV STREAM.”
