Netflix Orders Untitled Spy Series Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Monica Barbaro

Netflix has today given a series order to the an untitled series starring Arnold Schwarzenegger (The Terminator franchise) and Monica Barbaro (The Good Cop). The first season will produce eight, hourlong episodes.
