HBO FILMS' "MIKE TYSON: UNDISPUTED TRUTH," DIRECTED BY SPIKE LEE, SHOOTS IN NEW YORK FOR DEBUT LATER THIS YEAR

Production Is A Spike Lee Joint

NEW YORK, June 25, 2013 - Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson and legendary filmmaker Spike Lee will bring Tyson's hit one-man stage show to TV in HBO Films' MIKE TYSON: UNDISPUTED TRUTH, it was announced today by Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming. The program will be filmed in New York in July and will debut on the network later this year.

"I'm incredibly grateful to HBO for partnering with me and for believing in my story," said Tyson. "It is an honor and a privilege to be working with them to bring my one-man show, 'Undisputed Truth,' to life on the television screen."

"It was my honor and pleasure to share with Mike Tyson our Broadway debut," said Lee.

"Mike Tyson's one-man show is a fascinating journey into his storied life and career, and we are thrilled to have Spike Lee bring it from the stage to the screen for our viewers," said Lombardo.

Raw, honest, powerful and full of humor, the stage production of "Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth" features "Iron Mike" recounting his life's highs and lows in his signature candid style. He opens up about his troubled youth, landmark boxing career, key people in his life, controversies, time in prison, self-examination, family and new beginnings.

Tyson recently wrapped up a ten-week U.S. tour of "Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth," which debuted in Las Vegas in spring 2012 and ran on Broadway last summer, with Lee directing.

Reviewing the stage production, the Los Angeles Times called Tyson "a riveting stage presence with compelling stories to tell" and New York's Daily News described his show as "entertaining" and "fascinating," adding that he "is gifted with iron-clad charisma."

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.
