Starz has today announced the premiere date for the upcoming original drama series Heels starring Stephen Amell (Arrow) and Alexander Ludwig (Vikings).

The 8-episode first season will debut on Sunday, August 15 at 9/8c.

Set in a close-knit Georgia community, two brothers and rivals war over their late father's legacy - a family-owned wrestling promotion. In the ring, somebody must play the good guy and somebody must play their nemesis, the heel. But in the real world, those characters can be hard to live up to - or hard to leave behind.

In addition to Amell and Ludwig, the drama stars Alison Luff, Mary McCormack, Kelli Berglund, Allen Maldonado, James Harrison and Chris Bauer.

Michael Waldron created the drama, with Mike O'Malley serving as showrunner. They executive produce with Julie Yorn, Chris Donnelly, Patrick Walmsley and director Peter Segal. Lionsgate Television, Paramount Television Studios and LBI Entertainment produce.
