Arnold Schwarzenegger to star and exec produce new scripted Skydance spy series

US film star Arnold Schwarzenegger is to make his debut TV lead in a new spy series currently in development at Skydance Television.

He will also executive produce the as-yet-unnamed hourlong series, which has been created by Nick Santora, and is reportedly soon to be pitched to several streaming services.

The show is being described as a global spy adventure with a father and daughter at the heart of the story and no word yet on who will play the daughter.

Schwarzenegger, who worked with Skydance on the feature films Terminator Genisys and Terminator: Dark Fate, is currently set to star in and co-produce a new animated children’s series – Stan Lee’s Superhero Kindergarten – after becoming a “significant” investor in global entertainment company Genius Brands International.

Santora, meanwhile, is best known for his work on Scorpion, Law & Order and Prison Break. He will create, develop and exec produce this new series as part of his overall deal with Skydance, under which he is already attached to showrun a Jack Reacher series for Amazon.

Schwarzenegger is also attached as exec producer, alongside David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Bill Bost for Skydance, while Carolyn Harris will oversee the project.
