Mike Tyson Brings You Comedy About his Marijuana Farm
Mike Tyson is now working on a new TV series that revolves around his own life. But well, not his life as a boxer. Instead, his scripted comedy series will feature his life on his real-weed farm. To make it even more thrilling, Mike Tyson will star in the comedy series himself. There are just so many reasons to be watching this new Mike Tyson series. For one thing, he is a much loved celebrity. And for another, if the series is successful we might just learn how to grow weed on a marijuana farm. But even if not that, it would definitely be adventurous taking a look at Tyson’s life complete with boxing, ear biting and fervent love for pigeons.
What Is This New Comedy Series About?
Not exactly a lot has been shared about this upcoming comedy series by Mike Tyson. But we do know that it has been titled Rolling With The Punches. The show is a collaboration between Tyson and his business partner Rob Hickman. And is currently being filmed at Tyson Ranch office in El Segundo, California. The source who revealed these details said that Mike describes this project as in the vein of the HBO series Curb Your Enthusiasm by Larry David.
While talking to Page Six, Tyson shared that he was playing a retired boxer growing marijuana on his marijuana farm. He is acting like him so people could get a look on what his life might look when put in different scenarios. Chuck Zito will play Mike Tyson’s body guard which is pretty much his real life role. And Russell Peters will be Tyson’s useless best friend.
On this project, Mike Tyson and Rob Hickman have partnered with Joe Roth’s production company. And produced a sizzle reel. However, the decision of whether they will sell this comedy series to networks or follow a traditional approach when introducing it is still to be taken.
Let’s see what Mike Tyson will look like on his marijuana farm!
