Detective Mike Tyson
and his trusty pigeon sidekick are coming to a television set near you to solve some wacky mysteries.
"Mike Tyson Mysteries" is one of six new programs that will appear on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim sometime in the next year.
The former heavyweight champion of the world, who has become a pop icon of sorts in recent years, will "take the fight from the boxing ring to the streets, Variety magazine reports.
Tyson will voice the lead character as well as make live-action appearances.
Along with a foul-mouth pigeon, detective Tyson will "gear up for weekly adventures as they put unsolved mysteries -- like how to defeat a super computer at chess or why a famous author/werewolf can't finish his novel -- down for the count," Variety reports.
The network did not say when the show will debut, only indicating that it would be sometime next season.
Tyson has expanded his popularity from boxing to various entertainment arenas in recent years, including a 10-week run on Broadway with his one-man show "Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth -- Live On Stage."
He also has appeared in The Hangover series and Scary Movie 5.
