Get ready to be all shook up when Elvis Presley buckles up his blue suede shoes as a secret spy.
Netflix has ordered an adult animated series titled “Agent King,” which imagines Elvis being inducted into a secret government spy program to help battle dark forces that threaten the country he loves. But no need to check into the “Heartbreak Hotel,” as he’ll still hol down his day job as the most famous rock ‘n’ roll star on the planet.
The streamer is partnering with co-creators and executive producers Priscilla Presley (who was married to Elvis from 1967-73) and John Eddie. “Archer” writer Mike Arnold will serve as showrunner.
“From the time Elvis was a young boy he always dreamed of being the superhero fighting crime and saving the world!” said Priscilla Presley in a statement. “‘Agent King’ lets him do just that. My co-creator John Eddie and I are so excited to be working with Netflix and Sony Animation on this amazing project and getting the chance to show the world an Elvis they haven’t seen before.”
