• "Breaking It Down with Serena" (2000)

Also, back on June 15, 2000, Serena wrote to our site with the following news about her future show:
"Right now I'm out working on this amazing story I'd love to tell you about --
also it looks like I may be getting my own documentary series on MTV - that's
what I'm working on. We're going all over the world working on a story on
the military. So far we've been to California, New Jersey, North Carolina,
Nevada, Georgia, Hawaii and we're leaving for Turkey, Kosovo and Macedonia
soon. I've flown in an F 15 fighter plane... spent 3 nights on an aircraft
carrier....went from 0-130 in 2 seconds getting catapulted off the aircraft
carrier...plus the people are all so interesting."
