After initially announcing that Being: Mike Tyson would debut on Tuesday January 7th at 9:30pm, FOX UK has announced that the premiere for the six episode factual series has been pushed to Wednesday January 8th at 10pm. No reason was given for the scheduling change.
Being: Mike Tyson is a special six episode edition of Fox Sports’ Emmy Award-nominated all-access documentary series Being, which in the past has covered such subjects as Liverpool Football Club and the NYPD Football Club. In Being: Mike Tyson cameras follow Tyson as he travels the country on a national tour of his one-man stage show, he reflects on his past and seeks personal closure. Whether visiting the prison in Indianapolis where he served 3 years for rape, spending time with his one-time rival Evander Holyfield, meeting with Muhammad Ali, visiting his old neighborhoods in Brooklyn and the Catskills or simply spending time with his children, we see this emotional journey first hand. Captured in an intimate and immersive fashion, Being: Mike Tyson offers viewers a cinematic and private look at the former heavyweight champ. Unlike any portrait that has ever before been captured, Being: Mike Tyson is not a look back, but instead, a look inward.
