Mike Tyson

HBO’s next big show really packs a punch. The new show called “Da Brick,” finds its inspiration in an unlikely source, Mike Tyson. That’s right, “Da Brick” will be “loosely inspired” on Mike Tyson’s early days as a boxer.

The show won’t be a biography on Tyson, but will more or less use Tyson as a loose character guide. Director Spike Lee and “Entourage” creator Doug Ellin will team up to create the series, with Lee directing the pilot episode. John Ridley from “Three Kings” will also be writing the script for the upcoming drama. Ellin and Ridley have spent a while talking to Tyson and collecting material for the show.

The series is said to be about a young boxer living in Newark, N.J. Ellin told Variety that “Da Brick” “won’t just focus on boxing and that there are “lots of places it can go.”

HBO does have a good track record when it comes to TV shows ideas, so I don’t see any reason why “Da Brick” won’t be another success story.
