The Terminator has found a new home.
Arnold Schwarzenegger’s untitled father-daughter spy drama — announced last summer and co-starring Monica Barbaro (“Top Gun: Maverick,” “Chicago P.D.”) — has been picked up for eight hourlong episodes by Netflix, the streamer announced Wednesday.
Created by Nick Santora (“Jack Reacher”), the show follows a dad and offspring, played by Schwarzenegger and Barbaro, who are somehow unaware that they have both been covert CIA operatives for years.
According to the official description, the series “tackles universal family dynamics set against a global backdrop of spies, fantastic action and humor” after they are forced to partner for an assignment.
“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,” Schwarzenegger said in a statement about the series, which is produced by Skydance TV and is his first television project. “I am beyond pumped to start work on the show with Nick and Monica and the whole team.”
Executive producers include Schwarzenegger, Santora, David Ellison (“Mission: Impossible 7”), Dana Goldberg (“Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan”) and Bill Bost (“World War Z”).
No premiere date has been set.
Action star Arnold isn’t the only Schwarzenegger with career news this month. His California-based son, Joseph Baena, launched a new residential real-estate company in early May.
