Netflix Green Lights ‘Agent King’an Elvis Presley Animated Spy Series


Netflix is adding the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll to its roster of animated series.

The streamer has ordered an adult animated show called Agent King, which imagines Elvis Presley trading his white jumpsuit for a jet pack as he’s inducted into a secret government spy program to help battle dark forces that threaten the country he loves — all while holding down his day job as the most famous rock ‘n’ roll star on the planet. 

The series was announced on the 42nd anniversary of Presley’s death on Aug. 16, 1977.

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.
