As reported by theGrio, Hulu is also set to debut a new Mike Tyson series which has created tension between the popular streaming service and the pro athlete.
Iron Mike is set to be an eight-episode series based on the life and career of Mike Tyson. From the team behind the popular film based on Tonya Harding, I, Tonya, the series is said to “explore the wild, tragic and controversial life” of Tyson, calling him “one of the most polarizing figures in sports culture.”

Oddly, for a story based on his own life, Tyson himself is not involved in any capacity with the project.
In a recent statement, Tyson slammed Hulu for their new autobiographical project. The famed boxer said in his statement to The Hollywood Reporter, “Hulu’s announcement to do an unauthorized miniseries of my life, although unfortunate, isn’t surprising.”
Tyson then calls for Hollywood to analyze how they handle, and profit off of Black stories. He says, “Hollywood needs to be more sensitive to Black experiences especially after all that has transpired in 2020. My authorized story is in development and will be announced in coming days.”
The Iron Mike series is created by Steven Rogers, the screenwriter behind I, Tonya. Serving as showrunner and executive producer is Karin Gist, executive producer and showrunner of Mixed-ish on ABC.
