The Austrian is known all over the world for his legendary cinema roles in action-zippers like “Terminator” and “Predator”. On the other hand, the 73-year-old never took on major TV roles. Until now.

From the studio of “Terminator 6”
The TV format is the latest collaboration between Studio Skydance and Arnold Schwarzenegger, who most recently implemented “Terminator 5” and “Terminator 6” together, even if the agent series is actually produced by the Skydance Television offshoot.
The creative mind behind the series is Nick Santora, who as a writer and producer has already worked on formats such as “Prison Break”, “Lie To Me” and “Most Dangerous Game”. Incidentally, the New Yorker is currently developing another agent series, which genre fans should already be waiting for with anticipation: Because it is he who is the series of the agent adventures about Jack Reacher (with Tom Cruise) on Amazon adapted (without Tom Cruise).
