"I'm incredibly grateful to HBO for partnering with me and for believing in my story," says 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."

"It was my honor and pleasure to share with Mike Tyson our Broadway debut," says Lee.

"Mike Tyson's one-man show is a fascinating journey into his storied life and career, and we are thrilled to have Spike Lee bring it from the stage to the screen for our viewers," says HBO Programming president Michael Lombardo.

Earlier this year, Tyson wrapped a ten-week U.S. tour of "Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth," which ran on Broadway the previous summer, both directed by Lee. He will perform the show overseas this winter and spring. Tyson performed a similar show that ran in Las Vegas in spring 2012.

Reviewing the stage production, the Los Angeles Times called Tyson "a riveting stage presence with compelling stories to tell" and New York's Daily News described his show as "entertaining" and "fascinating," adding that he "is gifted with iron-clad charisma."

To be published Nov. 12 by Blue Rider Press/Penguin Group, the book "Undisputed Truth," by Tyson and Larry Sloman, is a first-person account of the elements that have shaped his life.
