Arnold Schwarzenegger is making his television debut as a lead actor with Fubar, an upcoming action comedy series. Netflix released a teaser for the same, showing the Terminator star in glamorous settings, and announced a May 25 release date. Created by Nick Santora – best known for The Sopranos and Prison Break – the series pits Schwarzenegger as a CIA agent, who has just learned that his daughter Emma (Monica Barbaro) is living undercover as an agent. for years as well. When their assignments converge, it leads to a “high-stakes” father-daughter showdown that not only disrupts global complications, but also their family relationship.

“Everywhere I go people ask me when I’m going to do another great action-comedy like True Lies. Well, here it is. Schwarzenegger said in a prepared statement. “FUBAR will kick your ass and make you laugh – and not just for two hours. You get an entire season. The Fubar teaser is short on dialogue but conveys a deadpan tone, underpinned by large-scale production values ​​- though you can tell the one-shot dumpster fire is CGI, considering it’s not there is no smoke coming out of it. He is seen lighting a cigar, drifting in a car, and participating in gunfire. The preview also shows a vulnerable and carefree side to our character, as he nears retirement. “That’s what you get for being sentimental,” close friend Ruth (Fortune Feimster) says after tapping our lead when off-guard.

Santora, who wrote two of Fubar’s eight episodes, also serves as showrunner.

Fubar also stars an ensemble cast, including Jay Baruchel (Tropic Thunder) as Emma Carter’s lover, Gabriel Luna (The Last of Us), Travis Van Winkle (You), Andy Buckley (Bombshell) and Aparna Brielle (AP Bio).
