A new type of fight club takes center stage the trailer for Starz’s Heels. The premium cabler has unveiled the trailer for its upcoming hourlong wrestling drama, which stars Stephen Amell and Alexander Ludwig. Don’t miss the series premiere August 15 on STARZ.
Written by Michael Waldron, with Mike O’Malley as showrunner, 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 (Amell) and Ace Spade (Ludwig), war over their late father’s legacy. In the ring, somebody must play the good guy (Ludwig) 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.
