Following in the footsteps of fellow action alumni Jean-Claude Van Damme and Steven Seagal, Arnold Schwarzenegger will star in his first TV series- an action offering from Skydance, producers of “Terminator Genisys” and “Terminator : Dark Fate”.
The untitled spy series, says Variety, will feature the former Governor of California in a spy scenario with a father and daughter at the center of the story. Precisely who will play the daughter to Arnie’s father figure is as yet unclear.
The project, which will be shopped around to networks, is one of two TV projects Schwarzenegger has coming up. The “True Lies” actor also lends his voice toGenius Brands International’s animated TV series “Stan Lee’s Superhero Kindergarten,” which is slated to launch next year.
Nick Santora, the “Prison Break” alum who is booked to launch a “Jack Reacher” series for Skydance in the near future, will create, develop and executive produce the Skydance series as part of his overall deal with the studio.
Schwarzenegger is exec producing alongside David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Bill Bost for Skydance. Carolyn Harris will oversee the project for the studio.
Last year, action-movie comreades Sylvester Stallone and Dolph Lundgren started prepping “The International”, an action drama series, which would star Lundgren.
