ARROW's Stephen Amell to Star in Professional Wrestling Drama HEELS

Stephen Amell to star in wrestling drama next for Starz

Former WWE SummerSlam participant and friend of AEW EVP Cody Rhodes, Stephen Amell, has landed the leading role in the new STARZ pro wrestling drama series, "HEELS". The series was reportedly looking for an eight-episode pickup at Starz, but with Amell now signed on, the cable company has greenlit the project.

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.

Stephen Amell plays the heel in the wrestling ring of the Heels series but the synopsis reveals that living up to that character in real life is not as easy, and leaving it behind is even harder.

Amell stars as Jack, the charismatic heel, or villain, who finds it hard to leave his dastardly personality in the ring. However, outside of the ring, he's the organization's owner, as well as a husband and father attempting to make things work as he fights (literally) to achieve his dreams. He wants to build the DWA into an empire, which could risk his marriage and his relationship with his brother. The Arrow star is trading in his signature superhero gear for a different set of spanks with the wrestling drama Heels, according to Deadline.

Stephen Amell is now filming the final season of Arrow and is letting fans along for the ride with a vlog after each episode wraps filming (Episode 1, Episode 2, Episode 3). While Emily Bett Rickards hasn't been confirmed one way or the other, an actor who played a character that many fans loved to hate is on his way back: John Barrowman. Amell competed against wrestling veteran Christopher Daniels in what turned out to be a show-stealer in last year's historic All In event. The series is produced by Lionsgate Television for Starz in association with Paramount Television Studios. Mike O'Malley will serve as showrunner.
