Mike Tyson will be taking on a different kind of fight in a new series from Warner Bros. Animation. ”Mike Tyson Mysteries” will air on Adult Swim with Tyson starring as a cartoon detective. True to the quirky nature of the youth-oriented Network, the show follows Tyson as he solves mysteries with the help of a magical face tattoo and a “fowl-mouthed” talking pigeon sidekick.
Viewers will be treated to zany storylines such as the crime fighting pair attempting to defeat a super computer at chess and why an author/werewolf cannot finish a novel. The show will hold a fifteen minute time slot but when it will air has not yet been specified.
Tyson began a second career in entertainment after retiring from boxing in 2006, which has included a cameo in the 2009 hit comedy film “The Hangover” and a 2011 television documentary series about his own flock of racing pigeons.
