In this yet-to-be-titled series, Schwarzenegger plays Luke, dad to Barbaro’s Emma. When they learn they’ve each secretly been working as CIA Operatives for years, they realize their entire relationship has been a lie and that they don’t know each other at all. Forced to team up as partners, the show tackles universal family dynamics set against an extreme backdrop of spies, action, and humor.

Among the new characters, Baruchel plays Emma’s boyfriend Carter, who is unaware that she’s a secret CIA officer. Brielle has been cast as NSA analyst Tina, and Udenio will play Tally, Luke’s ex and mother to Emma. Meanwhile, Buckley has been cast as Tally’s current boyfriend Donnie, Carter will play a CIA colleague named Barry, Feimster steps into the part of CIA Officer Roo, and Harris will serve as Regional CIA Director Dot.
