FUBAR (Netflix) Spy Action series starring Arnold Schwarzenegger - premieres 5/25/23

https://deadline.com/2020/11/arnold-...ar-1234613154/


EXCLUSIVE: In a competitive situation, Skydance TVís hourlong series starring and executive produced by Arnold Schwarzenegger has landed at Netflix, I have learned. The deal is still coming together and when all is said and done, I hear the project, also starring Monica Barbaro (Top Gun sequel), will head into development with a script-to-series commitment.Created by Nick Santora, the series, marking Schwarzeneggerís first major foray into scripted television, is said to be a global spy adventure with a father (Schwarzenegger) and daughter (Barbaro) at the center of the story.

Santora is executive producing the untitled series as part of his overall deal with Skydance Television. He also serves as executive producer/showrunner of the studioís upcoming Jack Reacher series for Amazon.



Schwarzenegger executive produces the new series along with Skydanceís David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Bill Bost; Carolyn Harris will oversee the project for the company.

The project was developed internally at Skydance TV and the independent studio cast the two leads before taking it out to the streaming marketplace.

The series extends Skydance TVís relationship with Netflix where the company produces long-running hit comedy Grace and Frankie and also produced Altered Carbon.

I think this is the perfect move for Arnold given his age and he's no longer a box office draw. Could very well work out for him like it did for Kevin Costner.

And I like Monica Barbaro. She was on Unreal on Lifetime, the Chicago shows and also did a Netflix show with Josh Groban.

Interested. Schwarzenegger has had a good post-governor career if you ask me in spite of his films not being box office successes.

You know at one time I really wanted that, a True Lies family spy series. But not anymore. I'd rather have something like The Professional TV series at this point.

Of course I'll watch this either way.

Cool. I hope it has some good action. Nobody makes them like the did in the 80s and 90s. I get tired of revisiting the same ten movies.

Arnold was interviewed by Scott Mantz. Got to around 3:45. He says the show is called Fubr? Meaning Fucked up beyond repair. I don’t know if that’s the real title. But he says this show is based on True Lies.

When I was in the Navy, we used FUBAR a lot. Fucked Up Beyond All Repair. I guess the writers are allowed to make their own adjustments.

The series is about a father and daughter who learn that they’ve each secretly been working as CIA Operatives for years. They realize their entire relationship has been a lie and truly don’t know one another at all.
Call it Truly Lies?

Much of that supporting cast doesnít instill me with a lot of confidence but Arnold still looks damn good for his age and he seems to be able to poke fun at himself so Iím in.

I think Arnie would have been a great fit for something like The Boys. I hope this one is entertaining as well.

They must have filmed this show in secret. Neither Arnold nor Monica Barbaro shared any photos or posts about being on set working in this. So I was wondering if this show was even going into production anytime soon.

Well, glad to know it's done. Should be a fun show to watch this summer.

Oh Okay. I missed Arnold's post from last September on Instagram when they wrapped. I see it now. He even called it Fubar in that post.

Looks like it could be fun. The special effectís looked questionable in a few scenes.

It looks like it might be fun and it's not taking itself too seriously either. Arnold has always been good mixing comedy with action.

Agree, this looks fun and could be decent if done right. Arnold following on the heels of Sly (Tulsa King) in their first entries into the TV streaming world.
