Meat Loaf will serve as executive producer.

Mike Tyson biopic “Tyson,” starring and executive produced by Jamie Foxx (“Ray”) and exec produced by Antoine Fuqua, Martin Scorsese and the boxing great, has evolved from a film to a limited series project. Hulu announced the order of limited series “Iron Mike” last month, a move Tyson labeled “cultural misappropriation.”

CBS’s “Survivor” is returning to Fiji for its 41st season, over a year after it was scheduled to start shooting. “The past year has reminded me and I hope it’s reminded you that you got to live your life like it’s one big great adventure and ‘Survivor’ fulfills that,” posted host Jeff Probst on social media.

Hence Netflix’s testing of a feature to crack down on password sharing. “This test is designed to help ensure that people using Netflix accounts are authorized to do so,” said the company.

Rakutem Viki, a streaming service for Asian content, is introducing a new TVOD (transactional video-on-demand) movie rental service, delivering Asian films within weeks to a few months of their origin country debut.
