Variety reports that Arnold Schwarzenegger (‘Terminator: Genesis’) and Monica Barbaro (‘Top Gun: Maverick’) will star in an untitled future spy adventure series for Netflix. The idea is to create a first season of eight one-hour episodes that will be executive produced by Schwarzenegger himself. The project comes from Emmy nominee Nick Santora (‘The Fugitive’) and Skydance Television.
The series centers on a father and daughter who learn that they have been secretly working as CIA agents for years. They realize then that their entire relationship has been a lie and that they really don’t know each other at all. Forced to come together as partners, the series addresses universal family dynamics in an international context of spies, fantasy action, and humor.
“Fans around the world have been asking me for a wild ride like this for years, and now they will finally get it thanks to our excellent partners at Skydance and Netflix. I am beyond excited to start working on the series with Nick and Monica and the whole team, “Schwarzenegger said.
The series has been created by showrunner and executive producer Nick Santora, who developed the project as part of a general agreement with Skydance Television. Executive producers also include David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Bill Bost for Skydance.
