After decades on the silver screen (and nearly a decade as a governor) Arnold Schwarzenegger is moving to the small screens.

The action star will play the lead part in a spy series. Schwarzenegger will also serve as an executive producer for the show.

The series is being produced by Skydance Television—a studio that has worked with him on the last two Terminator movies: Terminator: Genisys and Terminator: Dark Fate. The series is described as a global spy adventure and the story will revolve around a spy, played by Schwarzenegger, and his relationship with his daughter. It’s still unknown who will portray the daughter.

Schwarzenegger is involved with another TV project. He is set to give his voice to Arnold Armstrong, the lead character of the Genius Brands International’s animated TV series Stan Lee’s Superhero Kindergarten.

Alongside Schwarzenegger, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Bill Bost will also executive produce. Nick Santora, who worked on Law & Order, Prison Break, and Scorpion, will create, develop, and executive produce the show. The show has not yet landed a network, but it will be soon be shopped to several streamer services.
