Well known in the world of World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), actor Stephen Amell is about to bring his passion for wrestling to the screen with Heels, a series expected on August 15 on the StarZPlay platform. The former hero of the Arrowverse forms a duet with Alexander Ludwig, made famous for his role as Bjorn in Vikings.
In Heels, the two stars of the small screen play two rival brothers who are fighting over the inheritance of their father. In the ring you need a good guy and a bad guy, but in life everything is much more complex. Located in a small town in Georgia, the plot will focus on those men and women who pursue their dreams in the independent world of wrestling.
Composed of 8 episodes, the program is written by Michael Waldron, who also co-signs the series Loki and the movie Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness by Sam Raimi. It’s Peter Segal (Max Le Menace, Love & Amnesia) who will direct the episodes of this first season. On screen, Stephen Amell and Alexander Ludwig are surrounded by Alison Luff, Mary McCormack, or Allen Maldonado.
