Arnold Schwarzenegger is heading to the small screen for his first major scripted TV role, with the action icon set to executive produce and star in a spy adventure series from Skydance Television.
Created by Nick Santora (Scorpion), the series is described as “a global spy adventure” with a father (Schwarzenegger) and daughter at the centre of the story. Casting is currently underway for the role of the daughter.
Schwarzenegger is set to executive produce the as-yet-untitled series with David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Bill Bost of Skydance, having previously worked with the independent studio on Terminator: Genisys and Terminator: Dark Fate.
Along with the spy series, showrunner Santora is also working on a Jack Reacher TV adaptation, which is set up at Amazon Prime.
