– Stephen Amell announced this week that the upcoming Starz wrestling-themed drama, Heels, has wrapped filming on Season 1. He wrote in his tweet, “Season 1 wrapped. Wait till you see it.” You can see his announcement on the production below.

As previously noted, former WWE Superstar CM Punk will have a part in the upcoming show as an adversary to Amell’s character. Punk’s role could turn out to be a recurring one for the series.

The upcoming Starz show is written by Michael Waldron and has Mike O’Malley as its showrunner. It is described as follows:

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.
