A new series from Starz that focuses on two brothers that work as pro wrestlers is looking for new talent for the show, according to PWInsider. Former Arrow star and admitted pro wrestling fan, Stephen Amell, will be starring in the new eight-episode drama.
The project first attempted to launch back in 2017 but was held off until recently. It will follow the aforementioned brothers as they navigate the pro wrestling industry following the death of their father, who was also the promoter for the company they worked for. One man will be a babyface character and one will be a heel.
Amell has been cast as the heel brother, Jack Spade. In real life, the former Arrow star has made appearances in Ring Of Honor, WWE, and most recently, he was seen walking his close friend Cody Rhodes to the ring at AEW Revolution.
Luke Hawx of Wildkat Wrestling is involved in the project and issued out the following casting call:
The new television series, "Heels," is holding a casting call for amateur, semi-pro and professional wrestlers.
