The show is based on a true story, with IMDb saying the plot line is about the following:

The infamous armed robbery story after Muhammad Ali's historical comeback fight in 1970.
This is a story many are familiar with but it will be really cool to see it play out on the silver screen! Not only that, but the show has a ton of very famous faces.
