'It's Simple. I'm Playing A Retired Boxer Who Is Growing Marijuana,' Mike Tyson Shops New Comedy TV Series

It might be too early to judge, but Mike Tyson's new cannabis-themed show sounds a lot like 'Disjointed' 2.0.

The former heavy-weight boxing champion says he is shopping around a new TV series. The show is called 'Rolling With the Punches,' and will be loosely based on Tyson's own experiences a a marijuana grower and marketer, with Iron Mike himself in the leading role.

"It's simple. I'm playing a retired boxer who is growing marijuana," Tyson told Page Six. "It's basically me acting like me, so people can get a look at what my life could be like in different scenarios."

The show will be shot and set on Tyson Ranch, a marijuana resort launched by the famed boxer back in June. Rob Hickman, Tyson's business partner, says former 20th Century Fox and Walt Disney Studios exec Joe Roth is producing the show, which should begin airing this spring.

Other actors set to appear in 'Rolling With the Punches' are Chuck Zito—who is Tyson's bodyguard in real-life and will reprise that role on air—and comedian Russel Peters, who will play the "useless best friend."

Hopefully the show is picked up by somebody who isn't Netflix, since their track record with cannabis centrist programming hasn't been very good.

Derived from the part of the cannabis plant that doesn't get you “high” like THC, cannabidiol (CBD) is typically used for health reasons instead of for recreational purposes, and has been found to be especially useful for treating symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. A challenging neurodegenerative disorder, Parkinson’s causes a combination of motor and non-motor symptoms — such as tremors, weakness, stiffness, dizziness, anxiety and sleeplessness — that affect daily life. CBD, typically taken in oil form, has the potential to relieve these symptoms, improving sleep, reducing inflammation and more, which can profoundly help the more than 10 million people across the world suffering.
