The original True Lies is still one of the most engaging and powerful action films of the 90s. According to James Cameron, his wife, who alternatively claims to be a spy, is tempted into having a relationship with a used car dealer, played by Bill Paxton. The couple must find a way to get back to their marriage, and the film is a massive success, with over $378 million worldwide viewing.

According to Variety, CBS has ordered a series adaptation of the film for the 2022-2023 season. It was initially scheduled to premiere in February 2021, but was delayed until this years broadcast season for further consideration. The show appears to be sticking to the original film''s theme, with Steve Howey (She-Hulk) as his seemingly ruthless wife who is engulfed in his quest for adventure and exploitation.

Erica Hernandez (Brittany Runs a Marathon), Omar Miller (Ballers), Mike OGorman (Vice Principals), Annabella Didion (Outer Banks) and Lucas Jaye are among the cast members.

Matt Nix (Turner and Hooch) will play as writer and executive producer on the series. Anthony Hemingway (American Crime Story) will play the pilot, while James Cameron and Rae Sanchini from Lightstorm Entertainment are also executive producing, including McG (Charlies Angels), Mary Viola and Corey Marsh of Wonderland Sound and Vision, and Josh Levy of Flying Glass of Milk. 20th Television will play as the studio for the series.

McG has been working on a True Lies series since 2017, when Fox dismissed a potential sequel for a film that later failed to complete the script stage. At one point, McG claimed the series was slated for Disney+, but the result was obvious. The series is now one of four shows CBS has picked up for their next broadcast season.

The CBS series hasn''t had a release date, but the broadcast season of 2022-2023 typically begins in the fall. CBS is expected to reveal its fall schedule next week.
