For decades, wrestling has seen its transformation and evolution as an entertainment powerhouse live in-person inside the ring and also on television. With the upcoming drama series Heels, Starz presents an original drama about what goes on inside the ring and the life outside the ring.

The drama series is about two rival brothers—one a ring heel and the other a hero—grapple over their late father’s wrestling promotion business while vying for national attention in small-town Georgia.

The cast includes Stephen Amell (Arrow), Alexander Ludwig (The Hunger Games), Alison Luff, Mary McCormack, Kelli Berglund, Allen Maldonado, Chris Bauer, and two-time Super Bowl champion James Harrison as Apocalypse.
