Spike Lee has a genuine affection for Mike Tyson that shone through when the pair spoke to the press together at the TCA summer press tour in July about "Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth," a filmed version of Tyson's Broadway one-man show slated to debut on HBO on Saturday, November 16th.

Lee, who directed the special, called Tyson "the most honest human being I've met in my life," and the first teaser, below, suggests a somber tone in which the former heavyweight champion will open up about his storied career and troubled history. "Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth" is just the latest in a string of HBO projects Lee's worked on -- in addition to "When the Levees Broke: A Requiem in Four Acts" and "If God Is Willing and da Creek Don't Rise," Lee had boxing drama pilot "Da Brick" at the premium network, though it didn't make it to series.
