Matthew McConaughey is taking on the voice of Elvis Presley in Netflix’s new adult animated series, “Agent Elvis”.
“Agent Elvis” follows Elvis Presley at the height of his pop cultural fame when suddenly he is inducted into a secret government spy program to combat evil forces threatening America, all while keeping his title as the King of Rock and Roll. He’s a music megastar by day and a lethal vigilante by night.
Priscilla Presley is the show’s co-creator, along with John Eddie. McConaughey serves as one of the executive producers for the series.

Sony Animation produces the show, which was the studio behind the critically acclaimed “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse”.
“Agent Elvis” will premiere on Netflix in March.
