Next on the list for Netflix is Arnold Schwarzenegger, Monica Barbaro, and Nick Santora’s spy series!
This is what happens when Law & Order and Prison Break‘s Nick Santora and Skydance Television work together for a series––a global spy adventure with a father and daughter duo as the main storyline of the story.
As stated earlier, Monica Barbaro will be starring in the series as Schwarzenegger’s daughter in the show. If this does become a series on Netflix, this will mark Schwarzenegger’s first regular television role in his career––a debut, if you will. According to an insider, should the deal be final, it would be a script to series order.
Excited to read that @Schwarzenegger will star in a new Netflix spy drama series! Hopefully they like the script and go straight into production without a pilot!

Nick Santora created the show and is set to executive produce the series as part of his deal with Skydance TV. Alongside the spy series, Santora will also be working as a showrunner on Jack Reacher––another one of Skydance’s projects––which will be premiering on Amazon Prime.
Alongside Santora as executive producers will be none other than Arnold Schwarzenegger, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Bill Bost representing Skydance. Carolyn Harris, on the other hand, will be the overseer of the project for the studio.
Schwarzenegger’s impact on entertainment is unfathomable––definitely one of the biggest stars to ever exist in the world. He’s starred in major blockbusters such as the Terminator franchise and considering his appearance in Expendables, his overall badassery makes it into the hall of fame. Apart from that, he also served as the Governor of California for eight years from 2003 to 2011. That résumé is extra impressive, not to mention expensive as well.
Barbaro, on the other hand, has been becoming quite the star as well. She’s set to star in the upcoming Top Gun sequel alongside Tom Cruise which was, unfortunately, delayed until 2021 because of the pandemic. This isn’t her first stint with the streaming giant as well as she’s starred in The Good Cop.
