Stephen Amell Celebrates New Series 'Heels' with Alexander Ludwig & More Cast Members in NYC!

Stephen Amell is celebrating the upcoming premiere of his new Starz series Heels!

The 40-year-old actor stepped out for a 92Y conversation about the show with cast members Alexander Ludwig, Alison Luff, James Harrison, and Kelli Berglund on Thursday (July 29) in New York City.

It was just announced that Stephen‘s wine brand Nocking Point Wines will be honoring the release of Heels by releasing a Cabernet Sauvignon/Malbec red blend, Kayfabe.

The show’s pilot episode is titled “Kayfabe,” a term used in professional wrestling to mean the convention of presenting staged performances as genuine or authentic, and was chosen as the wine’s name to celebrate the series launch.

“Filming Heels put us all through a rollercoaster of emotions as we navigated a pandemic,” Stephen said in a statement. “That all being said, I am so proud of this show and grateful to have worked with the talented cast and crew who made it possible to get a glimpse into this arena that I admire so much. Being able to bring both my Nocking Point Wines and Heels worlds together by making a wine to commemorate the first season means so much to me. I hope people order the wine and enjoy it with me as we step into the ring and watch the season premiere together.”

The wine will be available to purchase on August 1 for $27 a bottle. The premiere of Heels will air on Starz on August 15.

It's Brother Vs. Brother In The First Trailer For 'Heels' Starring Stephen Amell & Alexander Ludwig

Stephen Amell and Alexander Ludwig try to choke each other in the first teaser for their upcoming Starz show, Heels.

The eight-episode series is set in a close-knit Georgia community, and follows a family-owned wrestling promotion as two brothers and rivals, Jack (Amell) and Ace (Ludwig) Spade, war over their late father’s legacy.

In the ring, somebody must play the good guy (Ludwig) and somebody must play their nemesis, the heel (Amell). But in the real world, those characters can be hard to live up to — or hard to leave behind.

Alison Luff, Mary McCormack, Kelli Berglund, Allen Maldonado, James Harrison and Chris Bauer also star in the show.

Stephen actually sustained a back injury while filming the show!

Heels is set to premiere August 15 on the network.
