Agent King series for Netflix


Netflix has ordered an animated show which imagines Elvis Presley inducted into a secret government spy program under the cover of his job as a famous rock ‘n’ roll star.

Agent King comes from Sony Pictures Animation, Sony Pictures TV and Authentic Brands Group. Priscilla Presley and John Eddie will serve as co-creators and executive producers, and Archer veteran Mike Arnold will write and 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. “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.”

Longtime Presley associate Jerry Schilling will be a consultant on the series.
