Arnold Schwarzenegger Spy Adventure Series Ordered By Netflix; Skydance TV Show Also Stars Monica Barbaro
Netflix has picked up Arnold Schwarzenegger’s upcoming untitled global spy adventure series with an eight-episode order. The one-hour scripted series is Schwarzenegger’s first major move into scripted television.
The series also stars Monica Barbaro (Top Gun: Maverick), and it was created by Nick Santora.
In the story, “when a father (Schwarzenegger) and daughter (Barbaro) learn that they’ve each secretly been working as CIA Operatives for years, they realize their entire relationship has been a lie and they truly don’t know one another at all. Forced to team up as partners, our series tackles universal family dynamics set against a global backdrop of spies, fantastic action and humor.”
Schwarzenegger said in a statement, “Fans from all over the world have been asking me for a wild ride like this for years, and now they’re finally going to get it because of our great partners at Skydance and Netflix. I am beyond pumped to start work on the show with Nick and Monica and the whole team.”
Santora created and developed the original idea and is executive producing the untitled series as part of his overall deal with Skydance Television.
