Mike, a new limited series about the career of Mike Tyson, arrives on Hulu on Thursday, August 25. The series explores the controversial icon, including the ups and downs of Tyson’s tumultuous boxing career and personal life. He has gone from beloved star athlete to outcast and made it back into the public’s good graces again. It uses Tyson’s life as a lens through which to discuss class and race in America, misogyny, the power of the media and fame, and how the court of public opinion can influence the trajectory of celebrity.
The series (hailed as “unauthorized and no-holds-barred”) comes from creator/screenwriter Steven Rogers and the team behind I, Tonya, and showrunner Karin Gist, executive producer of Our Kind of People. It stars Trevante Rhodes as Mike Tyson and Russell Hornsby as Don King, with recurring guest stars including Harvey Keitel, Laura Harrier, Li Eubanks, Olunike Adeliyi, Grace Zabriskie, T.J. Atoms, and B.J. Minor. Read on for more about how to watch Mike on Hulu.
