Brothers Jack Spade (Stephen Amell) and Ace Spade (Alexander Ludwig) can’t get along inside the ring or out of it in Starz’ new pro-wrestling drama, Heels, premiering August 15 across all Starz’ platforms.
In the series, the Spade brothers are trying to keep their father’s local wrestling business alive while also chasing their own dreams and having their own families. Jack’s invested everything in the business, while Ace has his eyes on bigger things.
The series also stars Alison Luff as Staci Spade, Jack’s wife; Mary McCormack as Willie Day, Jack’s business partner; Kelli Berglund as Crystal Tyler, Ace’s valet and love interest who has aspirations of her own; Allen Maldonado as Rooster Robbins, one of the best wrestlers in the circuit; two-time Super Bowl champion James Harrison as journeyman wrestler Apocalypse; and Chris Bauer as Wild Bill Hancock, a former wrestling star who is now a high-level pro wrestling scout.
Coming off of Disney Plus’ Loki, Michael Waldron serves as the series creator, writer and executive producer. Mike O’Malley is showrunner. Peter Smart directs and executive produces.
Heels premieres Sunday, August 15 across all Starz platforms.
