Arnold Schwarzenegger to topline 'Outrider' Western event TV series in works at Amazon
Amazon is developing Outrider, an event series with Arnold Schwarzenegger attached to star and executive produce, Deadline has learned. Also executive producing the project is Mace Neufeld, exec producer of Amazon’s upcoming series Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan.
Co-written/executive produced by Trey Calloway (APB, The Messengers, CSI: NY) and Mark Montgomery, Outrider is a mystery set in the Oklahoma Indian Territory in the late 1800s. It tells the dark and dangerous tale of a deputy who is not only tasked by a notoriously brutal judge with apprehending a legendary outlaw in the wilderness – but must also partner with a ruthless Federal Marshall to make sure justice is properly served. And as the story unfolds, not only will enemies become allies, but a series of unpredictable surprises will blur the line between good guys and bad.
Austrian-born Schwarzenegger would play the Federal Marshal who immigrated to the US from Europe as a child.
