Mike Tyson to Get Animated on Adult Swim's Crime-Solving Series


Mike Tyson


'Mike Tyson Mysteries' will follow the former boxer as he is playing detective with the help of his magical tattoo and his talking pigeon.

Mike Tyson has gotten his own show. U.S. cable network Adult Swim lines up "Mike Tyson Mysteries" on the next season's lineup, tapping the retired boxer to voice his cartoon character in a new animated series and make live-action appearances as well.

In it, he will solve wacky problems armed with a magical tattoo on his face and assisted by a sidekick, a foul-mouthed pigeon. Some plot lines include trying to defeat a super computer at chess or attempting to find an answer as to why a famous author/werewolf can't finish his novel.

Tyson is no stranger to acting world. He has a cameo on 2009's hit comedy "The Hangover" and appears in a 2011 TV documentary series about the racing pigeons that he owns in real life. He also has just finished touring his one-man autobiographical stage show, "Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth".

Aside from the "Mike Tyson" series, Adult Swim has also lined up new original series like "Rick and Morty" about a genius inventor grandfather and his less than genius grandson and "Your Pretty Face Is Going to Hell" which is a workplace comedy about Gary, an associate demon.

There are also such pilots as "Ghostbags" about three douche frat guys who died in a car accident and "Filthy Sexy Teen$" which follows a group of teens (and one high school principal) as they attempt to climb the social ladder by any means possible.
