Skydance Television first announced that it was developing an untitled spy television series for Arnold Schwarzenegger to star in and make his live-action TV debut in August 2020. Shortly afterward, Monica Barbaro was cast as the lead opposite Schwarzenegger in the series where a father and daughter are both CIA agents, unbeknownst to the other. Netflix won the rights for the project that November and had ordered eight episodes of the series by May 2021. The cast was expanded in April 2022, announcing several regular and recurring roles, and while in production, the series has used the working titles Utap and FUBAR.
Filming began in April 2022 in Antwerp, Belgium around Grote Markt. Additional filming is set to take place in Toronto. In September 2022, filming is wrapped up with the series now titled as FUBAR.
