21 May 2021: Arnold Schwarzenegger to play a CIA operative in TV debut
Actor and former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is all set to make his TV debut. He will play a CIA operative in an untitled Netflix spy adventure series. The veteran actor is also attached to the eight-episode series as an executive producer. The show will star Monica Barbaro as Schwarzenegger's daughter. Notably, she will be next seen in Top Gun: Maverick as well.
Introduction: Interestingly, both father and daughter work for the CIA
Barbaro will also portray the role of a CIA agent, just like her TV father in the upcoming series. Oddly enough, they soon realize that both of them have been secretly working as CIA operatives for years. The father-daughter duo will then be forced to team up as partners, and they find out that they barely know anything about each other. Emotional thriller, anyone?
Information: The globe-trotting drama will be full of action
The series promises to offer a global backdrop of spies, fantastic action, and funny quips throughout. Nick Santora is the man behind this untitled Netflix show. He is renowned for being the showrunner of other series like Jack Reacher and The Fugitive. The globe-trotting drama was developed at Skydance TV, which also produced the hit Netflix sci-fi series, Altered Carbon.

"Fans from around the world have been asking me for a wild ride like this for years, and now they're going to get it. I am beyond pumped to start work on the show with Nick and Monica and the whole team (sic)," he said in a statement.
