Jamie Foxx will play boxing great Mike Tyson in a new biographical limited series.
The series, titled simply “Tyson,” is not currently set up at a network or streaming service, but will no doubt find one quickly given the names attached to it already.
The series is said to span the whole of Tyson’s life.
Foxx has been discussing his involvement in a Tyson project for some time, stating last year that he was deep into training for the role, though at the time it was said to be a biopic rather than a series.
This is the second Tyson limited series announced in the past month.
Hulu previously announced that it had ordered an eight-episode limited series about the boxer, but Tyson came out strongly against that series when it was announced and said he was not involved in it.
