“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.”
Lee, who directed the show, has been extremely busy over the past few years. Other than directing a former boxer-turned-actor, Lee released "Red Hook Summer" in August 2012, helmed documentary on Michael Jackson "Bad 25, "executive produced "The Girl Is in Trouble," and has been finishing post-production work on his remake of "Oldboy" before its October 25 release date (or any festival it might pop up at). Add a July shoot date for this documentary, and Mr. Lee has a workload comparable to another prolific New York filmmaker: Woody Allen.
Tyson's show originally debuted in Las Vegas in the spring of 2012 before hitting the road for a 10-week U.S. tour that included a run on Broadway. Take an inside look at the stage show in the video below.
