Here’s what showrunner and executive producer Nick Santora told Netflix about the show: “FUBAR is, by far, the most surreal project of my career. I grew up watching Arnold Schwarzenegger films – I’d hit my dad up for a few bucks so I could race to the movies and see the biggest star in the world on the big screen – so creating the first scripted television project for Arnold is unbelievably exciting for me.

“The thing I always marveled at was how Schwarzenegger could be funny while still kicking ass… 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 plot – What’s it about?

The official synopsis for the forthcoming series is as follows…

When a father and daughter learn that they’ve each secretly been working as CIA Operatives for years, they realize their entire relationship has been a lie and they truly don’t know one another at all. Forced to team up as partners, FUBAR tackles universal family dynamics set against a global backdrop of spies, fantastic action and humor.
