Netflix has handed out a series order for the adult animated action-comedy “Agent King” in which Elvis Presley moonlights as a super spy.
In the show, Elvis trades in his white jumpsuit for a jet pack when he is covertly inducted into a secret government spy program to help battle the dark forces that threaten the country he loves – all while holding down his day job as the King Of Rock And Roll.
Creators and executive producers Priscilla Presley and John Eddie are teaming with Authentic Brands Group, Sony Pictures Animation, and Sony Pictures Television for the forthcoming series while Mike Arnold (“Archer”) will serve as showrunner, writer and co-executive producer.
Elvis’ wardrobe for the animated series will be custom-designed by John Varvatos who will be a consulting producer on the series. Jerry Schilling will serve as a consultant while Fletcher Moules will serve as supervising director and co-executive producer.
