Cinemax has given a straight-to-series drama “Warrior,” which is inspired by an idea from Bruce Lee and created and executive produced b y Jonathan Tropper (“Banshee”) under Tropper Ink Productions. “Set during the Tong Wars of San Francisco’s Chinatown in the second half of the 19th century, “Warrior” follows Ah Sahm, a martial arts prodigy who immigrates from China to San Francisco under mysterious circumstances, and becomes a hatchet man for one of Chinatown’s most powerful tongs (Chinese organized crime family).
“As a show that proudly bears the imprimatur of Bruce Lee, it’s our intention to deliver not only explosive martial arts action – which we will – but also a powerful and complex immigration drama that is as relevant today as it was in the 1870s,” said Jonathan Tropper.
Ten episodes of “Warrior” have been ordered.
