Legendary action star Arnold Schwarzennegar (Terminator, Predator, Commando) has lined up his first major small-screen role in Netflix's Fubar, and the first teaser trailer is now online.
According to the synopsis, Fubar "will show what happens when a father and daughter discover their entire relationship was built on a lie and that they are each CIA operatives. As the two join forces, the eight-episode series will depict themes of family dynamics with humor, action and, of course, spies."
If this sounds quite similar to the premise of James Cameron's True Lies, that seems to be the point!
“Everywhere I go, people ask me when I’m going to do another big action comedy like ‘True Lies.’ Well, here it is,” Schwarzenegger said in a statement. “‘Fubar’ will kick your ass and make you laugh — and not just for two hours. You get a whole season.”
The brief promo shows Arnie's character doing lots of Arnie-type stuff, such as lighting a cigar, walking away from explosions, and saying "I'm back."
Check out the first footage from Fubar - which stands for "f*cked up beyond all recognition" - below.
The series also stars Monica Barbaro, Jay Baruchel, Fortune Feimster, Milan Carter, Travis Van Winkle, Gabriel Luna, Andy Buckley, Aparna Brielle, Barbara Eve Harris and Fabiana Udenio.
Schwarzenegger serves as executive producer alongside creator and showrunner Nick Santora (Most Dangerous Game, Prison Break).
“The thing I always marveled at was how Schwarzenegger could be funny while still kicking ass,” Santora said. “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.”
Fubar will premiere May 25 on Netflix.
