NEW YORK (AP) – Adult Swim says it’s turning Mike Tyson into a cartoon detective.

The network announced Friday a new animated series called “Mike Tyson Mysteries” that will feature the retired boxing champ.

On the show, a cartoon version of Tyson will solve wacky problems, assisted by a trusty associate: a foul-mouthed pet pigeon. The network said Tyson will voice the animated character, as well as make live-action appearances.

The show is targeted for next season, but no premiere date was specified.

Among other programming planned for its 2013-14 season, Adult Swim announced “Robot Chicken DC Comics Special II.” It’s a second spinoff of the cable network’s long-running stop-motion sketch comedy series.
