“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 of HBO programming.
“Undisputed Truth” is Tyson’s way of telling the story of his life, including all the highs and lows. The show debuted in Las Vegas last year and has since moved to Broadway.
“I’m incredibly grateful to HBO for partnering with me and for believing in my story,” said Tyson. “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.”
HBO will be premiering the special some time later this year.
