Arnie Is Back Baby
Skydance is currently developing a new global spy adventure TV series that Arnold Schwarzenegger will produce and star in.
According to Deadline, this is Arnie’s first major foray into scripted television. Created by Jack Ryan showrunner Nick Santora, the new series will be aired in an hourlong episodic format.
Deadline also reports that it will be a “global spy adventure” that will centre on a father and daughter, with Schwarzenegger playing the elder.
At this moment, little is known about the project aside from the fact Schwarzenegger will be playing the international spy, as well as the fact there will be some sort of narrative angle regarding the spy’s daughter, who has yet to be cast.
Schwarzenegger will executive produce this new series alongside Skydance’s David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Bill Bost.
Expect for some pretty tasty bids on this project from Netflix, HBO Max and others, especially if the rest of the cast ends up including a few more A-list heavy-hitters.
We’ll report new details when we find out.
