The king is coming to Netflix. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the streaming service has ordered a new TV show about Elvis Presley called Agent King.
The animated series “imagines Elvis Presley trading his white jumpsuit for a jet pack as he’s inducted into a secret government spy program to help battle dark forces that threaten the country he loves — all while holding down his day job as the most famous rock ‘n’ roll star on the planet.”
Priscilla Presley will executive produce Agent King alongside Sony Pictures TV and John Eddie. Mike Arnold will serve as showrunner for the upcoming Netflix series.
From Priscilla Presley:
From the time Elvis was a young boy, he always dreamed of being the superhero fighting crime and saving the world! 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.”
