All work is off on “The Governator,” the would-be animated series starring Arnold Schwarzenegger as a superhero.
The companies behind the TV show said Friday that they have stopped working on the franchise, which had shown signs of growth.
Those “recent events” include revelations that the former California governor that he had an affair and child with a housekeeper who worked for his family for 20 years.
Schwarzenegger announced the series among much publicity last month in Cannes, France. The MIPTV (International Television Programme Market) was being held in the southern French resort city, where the actor received the insignia of Chevalier in the Order of the Legion of Honor on April 4.
The Governator was to feature Schwarzenegger as a superhero in the double role of a family man and ex-governor who fights global villains and modern-day disasters secretly alongside a team of hip teens.
No announcement has been made on when — or even if — production on the planned TV series, comic book, movie and video game will resume.
Schwarzenegger said Thursday that he was postponing his movie projects. Earlier last week, he confessed to fathering a child out of wedlock over a decade ago, and to not telling wife Maria Shriver until this year.
Two weeks ago, the couple announced their separation.
