Netflix has given a series order to Agent King,an adult animated comedy series about the King himself, Elvis Presley, from Priscilla Presley, John Eddie, Sony Pictures Animation, Sony Pictures Television and Authentic Brands Group. Today’s announcement comes on the 42nd anniversary of Elvis’ death.

Co-created by Presley and Eddie, in the series, Elvis 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 ‘n’ Roll.

Kevin Smith is bringing He-Man to Netflix.

The filmmaker on Sunday surprised fans at Power-Con in Anaheim with the news that he has teamed up with the streaming service, along with Mattel, on a new anime series that's described as "a wholly original story set in the epic world of Mattel’s over 35-year-old global He-Man toy franchise."

Smith will serve as showrunner and executive producer of the show, titled Masters of the Universe: Revelation, which will focus on the unresolved storylines of the classic '80s era, picking up many of the characters' journeys where they left off decades ago.
