This is a weird one, but it sounds intriguing: Agent King is a new animated spy cartoon/action program that Netflix announced is coming to the streaming platform at some point in the future. The lead character in the show is Elvis Presley, as in The King himself, in animated format.

The creator team behind this project and alternate reality adaptation of Elvis’ larger-than-life existence is none other than Priscilla Presley and John Eddie.

As Variety details;

In the forthcoming series, “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,” according to the streaming platform.

“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,” said Priscilla Presley. “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.”

Sounds wild, huh?

And don’t forget — there’s also an Elvis Presley biopic in the works, too, starring Austin Butler and co-star Tom Hanks.

Exciting times!
