“Mike” follows the boxing legend’s career over 30 years, including his hayday in the ring, his conviction for rape in the early 1990s, his post-prison comeback, and eventually his life after boxing, which included everything from a one-man Broadway show to memorable appearances in “The Hangover” movies.

In addition to Rhodes, Harvey Keitel plays Tyson’s trainer Cus D’Amato, Russell Hornsby portrays promoter Don King, while Laura Harrier plays Tyson’s first wife, actress Robin Givens.
While pitched as “authorized,” the series has been criticized by Tyson himself, who claimed in a social media post that Hulu “stole my life story and didn’t pay me.” The first two episodes land on the streamer on Aug. 25, with one episode per week arriving after that for the next six weeks.
