The official description reads "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."

The series will be co-written by Trey Calloway and Mark Montgomery, who will join Schwarzenegger and Mace Neufeld as executive producers.

Schwarzenegger will play a Federal Marshal who moved to the U.S. from Europe as a child. 

Arnold is an esteemed actor who has appeared in various installments of the Terminator franchise over the years. 

He has also appeared in films such as True Lies, Kindergarten Cop and Last Action Hero. Also, he served as the host of The Celebrity Apprentice in 2017. 

However, he quit the show soon after it concluded its seventh season amid claims he was not impressed with the increased media attention he received for the show after replacing Donald Trump.
