Netflix has announced details of an animated spy series following the espionage adventures of Elvis Presley.
The upcoming Agent King follows the King of Rock n Roll as he performs to adoring crowds in the day, before transforming by night into an undercover agent who is tasked with keeping America safe.
The show, which sees Elvis’ wife Priscilla Presley and John Eddie acting as co-creator and executive producer, was announced on the 42nd anniversary of Elvis’ untimely death in 1977.
Priscilla said: “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.”
She added: “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.”+
