Los Angeles, CA - September 16, 2021 - STARZ announced today that the first three episodes of the critically acclaimed wrestling drama "Heels," starring Stephen Amell and Alexander Ludwig, will be available to stream for free on Facebook, YouTube and the STARZ App beginning Friday, September 17 (12:01am ET on STARZ app; 8:00am PT on Facebook and YouTube). The episodes will also be available on Amazon, Apple, Att, Century Link, Charter, Comcast, Cox, Dish, Dtv, Google, Roku, Sling, Verizon And Vubiquity.
Rated Certified Fresh at 96% on Rotten Tomatoes, critics have described the gritty drama as "a scraped and broken bone take on the pursuit of the American dream," (Deadline), "a beautifully shot and well-written love letter to independent wrestling" (TVLine) and "heartbreakingly real" (Mashable).
Written and created by Executive Producer Michael Waldron ("Loki," the upcoming Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness) with Executive Producer Mike O'Malley ("Shameless," "Survivor's Remorse") as showrunner, "Heels" stars Stephen Amell ("Arrow") as Jack Spade, with Alexander Ludwig (The Hunger Games, "Vikings") playing his younger brother, Ace. Peter Segal (Get Smart, 50 First Dates, Tommy Boy, "Shameless"), who directs several episodes, also serves as Executive Producer.
The drama series also stars Alison Luff as Staci Spade, Jack's wife who learns that she has to contend with the emotional stakes her in-laws have invested in their wrestling goals and the demands it puts on her family; Mary McCormack as Willie Day, Jack's business partner and the logistical brains behind the local wrestling organization; Kelli Berglund as Crystal Tyler, Ace's valet, and love interest; Allen Maldonado as Rooster Robbins, one of the best wrestlers in the circuit who always has something to prove and always backs it up; two-time Super Bowl champion James Harrison as Apocalypse, a been-around-the-block journeyman wrestler who's been at it for decades and has no illusions of fame or glory; and Chris Bauer as Wild Bill Hancock, a larger-than-life former wrestling star who is now a high-level pro wrestling scout.
Along with Waldron, O'Malley, and Segal, LBI Entertainment's Julie Yorn (Hell or High Water, White Boy Rick, The Dirt), Christopher Donnelly, and Patrick Walmsley will also serve as Executive Producers. "Heels" is produced by Lionsgate TV for STARZ in association with Paramount Television Studios.
