Here’s the trailer for Mike. The series is from Steven Rogers (I, Tonya) and 20th Television that chronicles the life of heavyweight champion boxer Mike Tyson. The Hulu series will run for eight episodes.
… the series has the stern disapproval of Iron Mike himself.
“Hulu’s announcement to do an unauthorized mini-series of the Tyson story without compensation, although unfortunate, isn’t surprising,” the boxing legend wrote in an Instagram post. “This announcement on the heels of social disparities in our country is a prime example of how Hulu’s corporate greed led to this tone-deaf cultural misappropriation of the Tyson life story. To make this announcement during Black History Month only confirms Hulu’s concern for dollars over respect for black story rights. Hollywood needs to be more sensitive to black experiences especially after all that has transpired in 2020.”
The show premieres August 25th. Check out the poster below.
