Arnold Schwarzenegger has said his new TV venture features a "superheroic guy" who gets things done - without the constraints of laws that thwart his action.

The Hollywood hunk-turned-California governor said The Governator is an animated TV show that is a funny, action-packed, crime-fighting fantasy.

Viewers were told to "think Bruce Wayne" - the civilian tycoon behind the Batman mask - but involving a former governor who assembles a team of whiz kids to fight both crime and natural disasters.

The 63-year-old Terminator star, three months out of the governor's office, launched the cheekily titled venture at the MipTV television business conference at the French resort of Cannes.
