STARZ has shared a look at the upcoming wrestling-themed television drama, Heels. You can check out all the new stills and images below, featuring Stephen Amell and Alexander Ludwig. Also, former WWE Superstar CM Punk will be involved in the show in a recurring role as an adversary to Amell. The show is written by Michael Waldron and Mike O’Malley.
Here is the official synopsis:
“Heels is a story about the men and women who chase their dreams in the world of small-town pro wrestling. Set in a close-knit Georgia community, it follows a family-owned wrestling promotion as two brothers and rivals, Jack Spade (Amell) and Ace Spade (Ludwig), war over their late father’s legacy. In the ring, somebody must play the good guy (Ludwig) and somebody must play their nemesis, the heel (Amell). But in the real world, those characters can be hard to live up to — or hard to leave behind.”
