In the promo, Elvis, voiced by Matthew, says, “Every once in a while, man accomplishes the impossible. All it takes is someone with a dream. Cause when a man dreams, he can change the world.” The series is an adult animation, not for kids.

Priscilla added, “It’s giving him what he always wanted: to be a secret agent. Elvis has brought so many people together. He was so caring, so considerate, sensitive, of course – it’s like the fans are like him…because they’ve been gracious, loyal, brought their families, and keep coming back. It really is like one big huge family.”
