TV

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

AceShowbiz - %cMike 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.
