In 1994, at the age of 45, George Foreman completed the greatest comeback in the history of heavyweight boxing. Not only did he reclaim the heavyweight championship crown that was lost in spectacular fashion 20 years earlier to Muhammad Ali, but he went on to complete an unparalleled personal transformation – from reviled street bully to beloved teddy bear. Foreman is the unlikely story of a boxer who struggles with, and later establishes, a sense of purpose on his remarkable journey to achieve the impossible.
Foreman is directed by Chris Perkel (Clive Davis: The Soundtrack of Our Lives) and executive produced by Gary Cohen (Catching Hell, Requiem for the Big East). George Foreman Jr. is producer on the project as well as Matt McDonald (Catching Hell, Requiem for the Big East) and edited by Ross Hockrow (Gods or Men). Ross Bernard is also an executive producer; Jill Burkhart and Valerie Bishop Pearson serve as producers.
