“Fans from all over the world have been asking me for a wild ride like this for years, and now they’re finally going to get it because of our great partners at Skydance and Netflix. I am beyond pumped to start work on the show with Nick and Monica and the whole team,” said Schwarzenegger.

The currently untitled series centers on a father and a daughter who learn that they’ve been secretly working as CIA Operatives for years. They realize that their entire relationship has been a lie and that they truly don’t know one another at all. Forced to team up as partners, the show tackles universal family dynamics set against an international backdrop of spies, fantastic action, and humor.
