Arnold Schwarzenegger will star in his very first scripted TV series. The untitled action series for Skydance TV is said to be a spy drama created by Nick Santora (Scorpion, Breakout Kings). The studio is behind some fan favourite series like Altered Carbon and movies like The Old Guard and Top Gun: Maverick.
The spy drama TV series will be centred around a father and daughter going on a globe-hopping spy adventure. Schwarzenegger will be playing the father. There is no word yet on who will play the role of the daughter.
This father-daughter spy story certainly reminds us of Schwarzenegger’s 1994 Spy action comedy True Lies. The film starred Jamie Lee Curtis as Schwarzenegger spy wife and was written and directed by James Cameron (Avatar, Titanic). True Lies is currently being adapted for a TV series to be streamed on Disney+.
This spy drama series is The Terminator legend’s first-ever scripted TV series. Before this, Schwarzenegger had a one-season role on the unscripted show The Celebrity Apprentice in 2017.
No date has been released yet for this new show with Arnold Schwarzenegger. Till then, hasta la vista, baby.
