Arnold Schwarzenegger to star in his own Netflix series

Today, Netflix has announced that it is going forward with an Arnold Schwarzenegger series, a global spy adventure that will be the actor’s first scripted television project. He’ll be starring and executive producing the show opposite Monica Barbaro.

Skydance Television and Nick Santora will be producing the series.

Logline: When a father and daughter 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.

If the logline sounds familiar, it might be. In True Lies, Arnold was masquerading as a regular computer salesman until his family found out he’s actually a secret agent.

The series stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and Monica Barbaro (Top Gun: Maverick) and will include eight 60-minute episodes.

The show’s creator, showrunner, and executive producer is Nick Santora (Jack Reacher; The Fugitive series). It’s also executive produced by David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Bill Bost for Skydance.

“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,” said Schwarzenegger in a statement. “I am beyond pumped to start work on the show with Nick and Monica and the whole team.”
