Spy series starring Arnold Schwarznegger acquired by Netflix
This will be his first ever major TV role.
A new hour-long spy series starring Arnold Schwarznegger is headed to Netflix.
The currently untitled show will see his character embark on various missions across the world alongside his daughter (Top Gun: Maverick’s Monica Barbaro).
It was created by Nick Santora who’s also responsible for hacker drama Scorpion and will serve as showrunner on Amazon’s upcoming Jack Reacher TV series.
Santora will also act as an executive producer on the project as part of his deal with SkyDance Television. He’ll be joined by Schwarznegger, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Bill Bost.
Fans have been quite positive about the idea but some have highlighted how similar its premise is to the hit 90s comedy True Lies which also starred Schwarznegger as a secret globetrotting spy.
Schwarznegger recently reprised his iconic role as the T-800 in the latest Terminator film Dark Fate which was seen as a major improvement on previous entries Genisys and Salvation.
A release date for this project is not yet known.
