An unofficial dramatisation of the life and times of boxing's most infamous fighter Mike Tyson, this 8-part series titled 'Mike' looks sure to garner attention from sports fans and drama bingers alike. The show has already drawn controversy before even hitting screens, with the former undisputed heavyweight champ having come out against the show, accusing Hulu of stealing a black athlete’s story.

The show is created by Steve Rodgers, a writer with plenty of experience of adapting the story of a real-life athlete, having brought to the screen the Margo Robbie-starring I, Tonya, which documented the life of figure skater Tonya Harding.

Mike stars Moonlight’s Trevante Rhodes in the role of Tyson, with the show examining every aspect of the boxer’s life from his troubled childhood in Brooklyn to his late 80s glory days in the ring, and through to his 90s decline and spells in prison.

Harvey Keitel plays Tyson’s legendary trainer Cus D’Amato, while the strong supporting cast also includes Russell Hornsby, Laura Harrier, Li Eubanks, Olunike Adeliyi, and B.J. Minor.
