Netflix Orders Elvis Animated Series

The King is coming to Netflix. 

The streaming giant came out with some big news on the 42nd anniversary of Elvis Presley’s death, announcing that it has ordered a brand new adult animated action-comedy series from no other than Priscilla Presley. 

Per the official description, in Agent King, “Elvis Presley 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.”

Priscilla stated, “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.”

Mike Arnold will serve as showrunner. Presley and Eddie are co-creators as well as executive producers. Jerry Schilling joined the project as a consultant, and designer John Varvatos will create Elvis’s wardrobe for the show.
