“Arrow” star Stephen Amell has signed on to star in a TV show about a fictional wrestling promotion.

TV Line first reported Monday morning Amell will headline a show on Starz called “Heels.”

The 8-episode drama series at Starz will be about “the men and women who chase their dreams in the world of small-town pro wrestling.”

According to TV Line, the show is “set in a close-knit Georgia community” and “follows a family-owned wrestling promotion as two brothers and rivals war over their late father’s legacy.” 

Amell’s character Jack is the top heel of his family’s Duffy Wrestling Association.

This obviously wouldn’t be Stephen’s first brush with wrestling. He’s made appearances in WWE, wrestled against Christopher Daniels at All In and has a close relationship with Cody Rhodes — who he invited to join him on the new TV show. 

Will one of AEW’s Executive Vice Presidents be making an appearance on the show in the future?
