Netflix greenlights Elvis Presley animated spy series

The King of Rock 'n' Roll has joined streaming giant Netflix's slate of upcoming animated series. 

The adult series is currently being titled Agent King, and will see Elvis "trade in 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."

Elvis' widow Priscilla Presley and John Eddie will serve as co-creators and executive producers, and Archer veteran Mike Arnold will write and serve as showrunner in association with Sony Pictures Animation, Sony Pictures TV and Authentic Brands Group.

Agent King will join a roster of adult animated series on Netflix that includes BoJack Horseman, Big Mouth, Love, Death & Robots and the upcoming Kid Cudi series.

Agent King does not have a release date as yet.
