The action-comedy spy series marks Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s first-ever television project.
In Fubar, starring and executive produced by Schwarzenegger, a CIA Operative on the verge of retirement discovers a family secret.
Forced to go back into the field for one last job, the series tackles universal family dynamics set against a global backdrop of spies, action and humor.
From Skydance Television, the series will consist of eight 60-minute episodes. The show comes from creator, showrunner and executive producer Nick Santora.
The cast includes Schwarzenegger, Monica Barbaro, Milan Carter, Gabriel Luna, Fortune Feimster, Travis Van Winkle, Fabiana Udenio, Barbara Eve Harris, Aparna Brielle, Andy Buckley, and Jay Baruchel.
The executive producers include Adam Higgs, Scott Sullivan, Holly Dale, and Bill Bost with Skydance’s David Ellison and Dana Goldberg.
“Everywhere I go, people ask me when I’m going to do another big action comedy like True Lies. Well, here it is,” said Schwarzenegger.
He added: “Fubar will kick your ass and make you laugh – and not just for two hours. You get a whole season. It’s been a joy to work with Nick, Skydance, and Netflix to give my fans exactly what they’ve been waiting for.”
“Fubar is, by far, the most surreal project of my career,” added Santora. “I grew up watching Arnold Schwarzenegger films — I’d hit my dad up for a few bucks so I could race to the movies and see the biggest star in the world on the big screen — so creating the first scripted television project for Arnold is unbelievably exciting for me.
“The thing I always marveled at was how Schwarzenegger could be funny while still kicking ass… that’s why I wanted Fubar to be a hysterical, CIA-spy comedy mixed with heart-stopping action! And it is all that – and more. I’d love to elaborate with more details, but, sorry, it’s classified.”
