New York, N.Y., December 3, 2013 - Controversial and charismatic former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson bares it all in Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth, his hit one-man stage show directed by Academy Award® Nominee and personal friend Spike Lee (Do the Right Thing, HBO's When the Leeves Broke: A Requiem in Four Acts).
Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth will arrive on DVD with Digital Copy ($14.98) on February 11, 2014 (timed to Black History Month) and includes "Conversations," a featurette including interviews with Lee and Tyson, along with executive producer/writer Kiki Tyson and executive producer Jon Kilik, that discuss the story behind Undisputed Truth.
Raw, honest, powerful and full of humor, "Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth" features "Iron Mike" recounting his life's highs and lows in his signature candid style. Filmed before a live audience at Broadway's Imperial Theatre in New York City, this HBO Films® presentation finds Tyson opening up about his troubled youth, landmark boxing career, key people in his life, controversies, time in prison, self-examination, family and new beginnings.
Reviewing the stage production, the Los Angeles Times called Tyson "a riveting stage presence with compelling stories to tell" and the New York Daily News described his show as "entertaining" and "fascinating," adding that he "is gifted with iron-clad charisma."
Earlier this year, Tyson wrapped a ten-week U.S. tour of Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth, which ran on Broadway the previous summer, both directed by Lee. He will perform the show overseas through spring 2014. Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth is executive produced by Spike Lee, Mike Tyson, Kiki Tyson, Jon Kilik and James Nederlander; directed by Spike Lee; written by Kiki Tyson.
