Stephen Amell to headline 8-episode wrestling drama "Heels" at Starz

Postby Blue Jackets » Tue Aug 20, 2019 6:09 am

Stephen Amell is taking aim at his first post-Arrow gig — and it’s right in his wheelhouse’s bull’s-eye. The actor has signed on to headline Heels, an 8-episode drama series at Starz about the men and women who chase their dreams in the world of small-town pro wrestling.

Set in a close-knit Georgia community, Heels follows a family-owned wrestling promotion as two brothers and rivals war over their late father’s legacy. In the ring, somebody must play the good guy and somebody must play their nemesis, the heel. But in the real world, those characters can be hard to live up to (and just as hard to leave behind).

Amell will star as Jack, the charismatic villain — or heel — of the Duffy Wrestling Association. Outside the ring, he’s its hard-working owner, a husband and father trying to make ends meet while fighting to realize his impossible dreams. He has the mind of an artist in the body of a warrior, and a Steve Jobs-ian need for perfection — and for control. He says he’ll do whatever it takes to build the DWA into an empire.

I dont care about wrestling, but this sounds interesting. Didn't take Amell much time to land a big role post-Arrow
