Starz has released a poster and trailer for the upcoming drama Heels. The series takes place in the world of independent professional wrestling and stars Stephen Amell (Arrow) and Alexander Ludwig (Vikings) as Jack and Ace – two brothers and rivals in the ring who are also at war for their late father’s legacy.
Heels is a story about the men and women who pursue their dreams in the world of small-town pro wrestling. Set in a tight-knit Georgia community, it follows a family-owned wrestling promotion where two brothers and rivals go to war over their late father’s legacy. In the ring someone has to play the good man and someone has to play his nemesis, the heel. But in the real world, those characters can be hard to live up to – or hard to leave behind.
The series also stars Alison Luff, Mary McCormack, Kelli Berglund, Allen Maldonado, James Harrison and Chris Bauer.
Heels will premiere on August 15 on Starz.
