“Biographical pictures are a fan favorite and a staple of the movie and and television business and frequently the subjects are not involved. We have a strategy of taking a modern lens and applying it to stories and figures of popular culture of the past,” says President of ABC Entertainment and Hulu Originals Craig Erwich.
We’ve had a lot of success doing that and I think it reveals interesting things, not just about where we’ve been but where we are so we’re looking forward to continuing the creative conversations behind Iron Mike.”
