Hulu Drops Its Trailer For Their Mike Tyson Series; But Mike Ain't Happy

Hulu dropped the trailer for the Mike mini-series which chronicles the life and career of Mike Tyson.

Created by I, Tonya writer Steven Rogers the upcoming series “stars Moonlight’s Trevante Rhodes as Mike Tyson, Spiderman: Homecoming’s Laura Harrier as Robin Givens, and BMF’s Russell Hornsby as Don King.

Mike Tyson called for a boycott of the show in an Instagram post.

“Hulu’s announcement to do an unauthorized mini-series of the Tyson story without compensation, although unfortunate, isn’t surprising. This announcement on the heels of social disparities in our country is a prime example of how Hulu’s corporate greed led to this tone-deaf cultural misappropriation of the Tyson life story. To make this announcement during Black History Month only confirms Hulu’s concern for dollars over respect for black story rights.”

Tyson said that the only story that is authorized is the Martin Scorcese produced, Antoine Fuqua directed, and Jamie Foxx led limited series that is currently in production.

“I have been looking to tell my story for quite some time,” Tyson said in the statement. “With the recent launch of Legends Only League and the excitement from fans following my return to the ring, now feels like the perfect moment. I look forward to collaborating with Martin, Antoine, Jamie, and the entire creative team to bring audiences a series that not only captures my professional and personal journey but also inspires and entertains.”

Mike premieres on August 25 exclusively on Hulu.
