MIKE: Release date, trailer and everything we know

It looks like Hulu subscribers should prepare to be knocked out this summer with the arrival of MIKE, the drama series based on the legendary Mike Tyson. (We realize we shamefully opted for the pun here, but we couldn’t help it).

For many sports fans, the series is long overdue. As ESPN (opens in new tab)Tyson has reportedly won 50 of the 58 fights Tyson has boxed in his career, 44 of them by KO. He clearly didn’t earn the name “Iron Mike” for nothing. While his amazing record certainly speaks to his sporting ability, it doesn’t paint the story of his sometimes turbulent life journey. From his public and rocky marriage to ex-wife Robin Givens to his brief stint in prison to the bite that was seen around the world in his match with Evander Holyfield, he’s found himself in some predicaments, that of the butt of bad press and bad were, sometimes cruel, jokes.
