Starz have released the teaser trailer for the upcoming wrestling drama series Heels.
The official synopsis for the series is as follows:
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 and Ace Spade, 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 — or hard to leave behind.
The series is written by Michael Waldron, with Mike O’Malley serving as showrunner and Peter Segal directing the episodes. The series stars Stephen Amell, Alexander Ludwig, Alison Luff, Kelli Berglund, Chris Bauer, Allen Maldonado, James Harrison, Mary McCormack, Trey Tucker, Robby Ramos, David James Elliott and Joel Murray.
Heels will premiere on Starz on the 15th August 2021.
