HBO is teaming with director Antoine Fuqua and athlete LeBron James for a multi-part documentary about the life of boxing great Muhammad Ali which has just begun production.
Currently untitled, the series will explore Ali’s greatest triumphs and comebacks. James and Maverick Carter’s SpringHill Entertainment along with Fuqua Films are producing the project.
The doc is being done with participation from Ali’s family estate and will combine archival footage and never-before-seen photos and footage from private collections of the Ali family and others.
It will also feature “gorgeous, cinematic recreations” of key moments in Ali’s life. James, Fuqua and Carter will serve as executive producers, and no air date has been set as yet.
