Mike Tyson’s successful one man stage show is coming to HBO with director Spike Lee at the helm. Lee, who directed the stage show, will also executive produce Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth along with Mike Tyson, writer Kiki Tyson, Jon Kilik, and James Nederlander.
Mike Tyson’s stage show debuted in Las Vegas and will be filmed in New York next month, with HBO planning on airing the special in late 2013.
Commenting on the HBO Films project, Tyson said, “I’m incredibly grateful to HBO for partnering with me and for believing in my story. It is an honor and a privilege to be working with them to bring my one-man show, Undisputed Truth, to life on the television screen.”
“Mike Tyson’s one-man show is a fascinating journey into his storied life and career, and we are thrilled to have Spike Lee bring it from the stage to the screen for our viewers,” said Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming.
Raw, honest, powerful and full of humor, the stage production of Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth features “Iron Mike” recounting his life’s highs and lows in his signature candid style. He opens up about his troubled youth, landmark boxing career, key people in his life, controversies, time in prison, self-examination, family and new beginnings.
