Septuagenarian Arnold Schwarzenegger to Lead Spy Adventure Netflix Series


Netflix has given an eight-episode series order to an untitled global spy adventure one-hour starring and executive produced by Arnold Schwarzenegger in his first major foray into scripted television.

The streamer landed the Skydance TV-produced hourlong series, also starring Monica Barbaro (Top Gun: Maverick), in a competitive situation last November for development with a script-to-series commitment.

In the series, created by Nick Santora (Jack Reacher; The Fugitive series), 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.
