In a world with 500 cable channels, nearly infinite webpages, an ever-growing list Netflix original series, and billion-dollar-grossing video games, standing out is difficult. Because of this, many shows and movies fall back on shock factor or name recognition to gain traction. The Mike Tyson Mysteries – premiering this fall on Adult Swim – has both in spades. The latest cartoon from the venerable late night comedy block that seems to green light shows after extensive focus grouping on people whom they have dosed with LSD, stars the real Mike Tyson who, with the help of his adopted Korean daughter (Rachel Ramas), the ghost of the man who codified the rules for boxing (Jim Rash) and a talking, and extremely lecherous pigeon (Norm MacDonald), travel the countryside, solving mysteries. Yeah.
Last week at Comic-Con, Collider sat down with Tyson and talked about how Tyson came to Warner Brother’s with the idea and more. Lots more. At one point, Tyson even tells a moving story about his parents that begins with a reference to Silence of the Lambs. Hit the jump for our Mike Tyson interview!
