FUBAR, which is based on an idea created by The Sopranos writer Nick Santora, seems to pay homage to Arnie’s illustrious past as a real action icon.
With lots of heavy True Lies vibes and comedic moments that capture the same sense of humor that helped make movies like Twins and Kindergarten Cop a box office hit.
Schwarzenegger stars as Luke Brunner in Fubar, a seasoned spy with a top-secret CIA clearance who has seen his fair proportion of battles while hiding his escapades from his loyal family back home.
But as he prepares to retire, he’s enlisted to help with yet one more mission involving a secret spy who happens to be his daughter Emma.
This expedition is an odd opportunity for father and son to get closer as they work together to defeat the evil threatening the planet, as neither knows the other’s secret work.
The trailer for Arnold Schwarzenegger’s “Fubar” features the action comedy Saga.
Many aspects of FUBAR scream Arnold Schwarzenegger. Smoking Stogie cigars, setting things on fire, and shooting pistols.
The initial FUBAR teaser includes each of these images. The teaser concludes with a fast comic dialogue between Luke Brunner, played by Arnold Schwarzenegger, and his friend Roo.
The first teaser, released on February 27, shows Schwarzenegger still enjoying action movies, one-liners, and cigarettes. The espionage drama “Fubar” is similar to Jamie Lee Curtis and Arnold Schwarzenegger’s “True Lies” from 1994.
Schwarzenegger will be central to a scripted television series for the first time, although the project adds other action roles to his extensive resume as an actor, governor, and bodybuilder.
In the trailer, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s portrayal of Luke Brunner is shown at age 65 and on the verge of retirement.
However, when he’s given a mission to bring a insurgent agent home, he’s shocked to discover that the agent is his daughter. The full trailer has lots of Action, violence and jokes like The Real Lie.

The show’s executive producers are Schwarzenegger, Adam Higgs, Scott Sullivan, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Skydance’s Bill Bost.
