Stephen Amell & Alexander Ludwig Star In First Teaser For New Series 'Heels'

Stephen Amell and Alexander Ludwig are getting into the ring in this first look at their upcoming new show Heels!

The guys play brothers Jack and Ace Spade in the new wrestling series, coming this summer.

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.

The new show also stars Kelli Berglund, Alison Luff, Roxton Garcia, James Harrison Jr, Melissa LeEllen, Joel Murray and Robby Ramos.

Look out for Heels on August 15th on Starz.

Stephen Amell Considered an 'Arrow' Return This Summer!

Stephen Amell Considered an 'Arrow' Return This Summer!

Stephen Amell revealed he almost tried to bring back Arrow this past summer!

During a recent podcast interview, the 39-year-old actor revealed that he proposed the idea to producer Greg Berlanti while he was in Canada.

“I phoned Greg Berlanti about [the idea]. I mean, from my perspective, it wasn’t a far fetched thing,” Stephen said. “This was in early July, there was a plan to go back to Heels in late August, but this was also during the summer surge that was happening in the States, where they hit daily highs, only to be eclipsed by the daily highs that we’re about to hit now.”

“I had just gotten to Canada, I was quarantining. I’m back in British Columbia, it feels so familiar after eight years of shooting of Arrow, and I’m also looking around at the fact that…” he continued. “Canada has seen a bit of a bump up in cases, which I think is to be expected, but I mean, the numbers relatively speaking are still so incredibly low, and were even lower at the time…”

“I’m thinking to myself, if everything goes to sh–, why don’t we just do another season of Arrow?” he said. “Because I want to work. I called Greg up and said just that. I said, ‘Look, I hope this doesn’t happen, but if everything goes to sh– and you guys can’t get actors up here, because of issues about mostly American actors crossing into Canada, and if things can’t be figured out, here’s the deal, man. I’m here, and if I have to stay here, I want to work. And if I’m gonna work, let’s just figure out a way to bring Oliver back from the dead.’”

“He goes, ‘Are you serious?’ And I go, ‘Yeah, of course I’m f–kin’ serious. Again, I hope it doesn’t happen, but I mean, can we at least put it on the radar?’ And he goes, ‘Yeah, of course. Why Not?’” Stephen added.

“I’ve always made a point of never saying never.”

If you missed it, in that same podcast, Stephen talked about his recent experience with testing positive for COVID-19.

Stephen Amell Opens Up Coronavirus Diagnosis & How It Affected His Show

Stephen Amell is opening up about his recent bought with Coronavirus.

The Arrow actor, who will now star in the new Starz series Heels, spoke out publicly for the first time about testing positive earlier this month.

“I tested positive for COVID-19, geez, 15 days ago. Two weeks ago, Monday. Today being Tuesday, October 20th,” he said on the Inside of You w/Michael Rosenbaum podcast. “The thing is that, I um, I had already been isolated from work because there was a positive test on the show, and I repeatedly tested negative through the week, but ultimately, for whatever reason came down with symptoms the following Monday, got tested on the Tuesday.”

“I’ve actually been cleared to go back to work since Friday, this past Friday, but they didn’t know if I would be cleared for sure until basically this Wednesday, so they have been building other stuff into the schedule,” Stephen added.

“I woke up and it was the strangest thing. My f–kin’ right ear was plugged, and I was hot and cold. I never ran a fever,” he shared about his symptoms and how he knew something was up. “I’d say that I’ve started to notice something on Monday, but didn’t have a test result… Those first couple of days, they just really sucked.”

Stephen said he had the sweats, dizziness and loss of appetite. He also added that his show only shut down production for one day.

“When I got the positive test, for me it became holy f–k. I just destroyed this show because I’m number one on on the call sheet and I work every day more or less… I’m in my head going, ‘S–t, they’re going to have to shut down the production. We’re not yet done with the first block of two episodes. Did I just ruin this?’” he said.

“I’m incredibly fortunate that if I have to go into isolation, I have a job waiting for me on the other side,” he continued. “Again, thank you very much to Starz for being so supportive and what they did over the past three weeks, the show shut down for one day. What they were able to do is mind boggling, quite frankly. It just goes to show that they were prepared for it, but not everyone has the luxury of taking two weeks off. In fact, most people don’t. We are in the midst of a global pandemic and times are tough for a lot of people.”
