Hi! I am the Managing Editor for Nerdbot.com I enjoy watching anime, learning about new things and keeping up with Nerd Culture. I love writing and hope to introduce people to things that they may not have known about before through my articles.

Announced today “Arrow” star Stephen Amell will headline a new wrestling drama series for Starz. The term Heel is used in wrestling to describe a wrestler that portrays the bad guy. Since Amell has joined the series has been approved for an eight episode run at an hour long each.

Michael Waldron (Loki) is writing with Mike O’Malley showruning.

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.

Deadline

This should be a fun and new experience for Amell since he just left being Oliver Queen on the DCEU show Arrow. His character in this will struggle with trying to get the Duffy Wrestling Association into the spotlight. He may even risk his job, marriage and relationship to his brother to make that happen.

Produced by Lionsgate TV in association with Paramount TV and originally pitched by Paramount in 2017. Executive producing will be LBI Entertainment’s Julie Yorn, Chris Donnelly, Patrick Walmsley, as well as Waldron and O’Malley.

With how well GLOW is doing it is predicted that this show will also do well with fans of wrestling. Even people that do not watch wrestling will be able to get into the show since it will be half wrestling and half story. Much like GLOW is on Netflix. There is no word on when this series will air but stay tuned and we will keep you updated!
