TVLine is reporting that Arrow star Stephen Amell will be starring in an 8-episode drama about the wrestling business called “Heels.” The 8-episode drama will air on the STARZ network.
The show will focus on a family-owned Georgia wrestling promotion, and the two brothers that run it, as they battle over their late-father’s legacy. Amell is set to play the main antagonist.
No word on when the show is set to go into production, as Amell is currently filming the final season of Arrow.
Amell took to Twitter to ask All Elite Wrestling Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes (who knows a thing or two about battling one’s brother over their father’s Georgia wrestling legacy) if he’d like to “help me make a TV show?”
