Hulu has debuted a teaser trailer and artwork for the series ‘Mike,’ starring Trevante Rhodes as Mike Tyson.
From creator/screenwriter Steven Rogers and the team behind ‘I, Tonya’ and showrunner Karin Gist, executive producer of ‘Our Kind of People.’ The series explores the dynamic and controversial story of Mike Tyson. The 8-episode limited series explores the tumultuous ups and downs of Tyson’s boxing career and personal life – from being a beloved global athlete to a pariah and back again.
Focusing the lens on Mike Tyson, the series examines class in America, race in America, fame and the power of media, misogyny, the wealth divide, the promise of the American Dream and ultimately our own role in shaping Mike’s story.
