New T.V. Series ‘Warrior’ Inspired By Bruce Lee’s Writings Looks Extremely Epic

December 14, 2018
A new Cinemax series called “Warrior,” inspired by the writing of Bruce Lee, has just released an exclusive trailer, a project that has taken almost 50 years to come to fruition.
The first season will feature 10-episodes and will be set in 1870s Chinatown, San Francisco with a largely Asian cast. It will be released sometime next year.

Bruce Lee’s daughter, Shannon Lee, serves as executive producer of the show as well as head of Bruce Lee Entertainment. She will also be working alongside executive producer Justin Lin, well known in the “Fast and Furious” franchise. Both are working to keep the show in line with the late Lee’s vision.
Bruce Lee had created a project that was rejected by Warner Bros. He kept the rejected project in the family garage and the treatment was considered lost. The project was meant to serve as a precursor to a the 1970s Warner Bros. television series “Kung Fu.”

Lin was adamant about the prominence of an Asian American cast on the show.
“And the one thing I’ve learned is, the talent is out there. It’s about trying to hopefully create the opportunity, and we didn’t want to take that lightly,” he said.
The American story will have actor Andrew Koji play Ah Sahm as political conspiracies, rising anti-immigrant violence and secret agendas boil.

Shannon Lee told the Los Angeles Times that she was excited to see where the show was headed.
“Season 1 is just the beginning. We’ll hopefully get the opportunity to play the long game here and really get into some extremely interesting stuff, which we already have planned.”
