Stephen Amell To Star In A New Wrestling TV Show Called 'Heels'

With Arrow having its eighth and final season this year, Stephen Amell is already looking towards the future. The actor has now signed up to star in a new TV show called 'Heels' which is about professional wrestling.

Amell is a fan of professional wrestling so this new show will be up his alley. Deadline posted all of the details so see below for more information about the new show.

"Written by Michael Waldron (Loki), with Mike O’Malley set as showrunner, Heels is 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 — one of them played by Amell — war over their late father’s legacy. In the ring, somebody must play the good guy 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. In the ring, Amell’s Jack Spade is the charismatic villain, or heel, of the Duffy Wrestling Association (DWA). In the real world, 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. Will he go so far as to risk his marriage, or his relationship with his brother?"

Amell has wrestled before for both WWE and in the All In PPV in the past.

Amell already wants his buddy Cody Rhodes to be a guest star in 'Heels' as he tweeted to the All Elite Wrestling Star about the announcement.
