Arnold Schwarzenegger To Star In Father/Daughter Spy Series From Creator Of ‘Breakout Kings’

Arnold Schwarzenegger has been a consummate movie star all of his career, but can he replicate that success on the small screen? We’re going to find out, as Arnold is headed to TV for the first time ever in a new series from the creator of Scorpion.

Deadline reports Schwarzenegger will produce and star in an action spy series from Nick Santora, creator of the shows Scorpion and Breakout Kings. I quite liked that last one. The series will center on a father/daughter spy duo, with Schwarzenegger in the obvious role. There’s no confirmed destination yet, but it will arrive on an unnamed streaming service courtesy of SkydanceTV.

Schwarzenegger was most recently seen in Terminator: Dark Fate, and since that movie went nowhere, there’s no need to worry about him being busy with sequels. He’ll be seen next in Kung Fury II: The Movie.
