Die Hard and Terminator director James Cameron is overseeing the production of a new action-thriller coming to CBS next year, Deadline has reported. Called “True Lies,” the series is based on Cameron’s hit 1994 action comedy starring Arnold Schwarzenegger as secret agent Jack.

The original “True Lies,” directed by James Cameron and starring Tom Arnold, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Bill Paxton, was released to theatres on July 15, 1994. It earned $378 million at the box office on a budget of $115 million and picked up an Academy Award nomination for Best Sound Editing along the way.

What is the series about?
The series is much similar to the 1994 film of the same name. The series True Lies’ is about a family man who doubles as a secret agent. The series revolves around people who threaten the safety of his family. However, it has been reported on Deadline that the plot of this film will revolve around the main character’s wife. The story will focus on Helen, a professor who also serves as her husband, Harry’s full-time assistant. Harry has been away for over a year and Helen is bored with her daily routine, mundane life, and her feminist book club. But when she figures out that Harry works for a secret agency, it puts both their lives in danger. This series is also said to be an action thriller based on a review of the show. Steve Howey stars as Harry Ellis, a CIA operative traveling under the cover of a family man who doubles as a covert spy. As Helen tries to get back into their normal routine and continue with her life, Harry is haunted by the shadows of his past—a mission that led him to love Helen in the first place.
What fans are expecting from the series?
The series is considered to be similar to the 1994 film ‘Ture Lies’ and is said to be an action thriller. The new tv series by Anthony Hemingway, which will air on CBS, will focus on a spy-thriller about a family man that doubles as a secret agent, Deadline has learned. Based on Cameron’s hit 1994 action comedy starring Arnold Schwarzenegger as secret agent Jack, the series will explore what happens when someone puts the safety of his family in jeopardy, while also drawing parallels between his three worlds: That of a family man, covert operative and husband/secret agent. The possibilities are endless with a mix of action, suspense, and a unique approach to spy-thriller.
