On June 8, 2022, Hulu released the teaser for Mike, showing him sitting in a dim-lit dressing room lit by a string of lights surrounding him. Blood begins to flow from his opponent's mouth, and this shot highlights Tysons brutal knockout tactic.

The teaser features Rhodes Tyson along with a number of other notable figures in his life. One of the most well-known appearances is that of Cus DAmato, Mikes boxing manager and trainer. DAmato was instrumental in transforming Tyson into the larger-than-life character that he would later portray. Laura Harrier (Hollywood) plays Robin Givens, Tysons first wife who is adorned with a fur-lined jacket and coifed hair.

The whole teaser for the miniseries was released on July 20, 2022, which revealed many similarities to Tyson's behavior. He then goes on to profess to people that he is a savage. I want your heart, I want to eat your children.' The next scene of Givens in a courtroom underscores that this series will not shy away from depicting Tyson's most notorious bite.

The cinematography appears to match the larger-than-life persona. There are slow-motion, panning shots, and close-ups of Tysons' face that stand out here. The costume work and the set design are other aspects of the series that seem to stand out here.
