Stars: Jason Tobin, Andrew Koji, Olivia Cheng
Review: Here’s an interesting one – Justin Lin, of Fast & Farious, Fast & Furious 5 and Fast & Furious 6 (as well as Tokyo Drift, and occasionally Community) fame, is working on a TV series based on an original idea from Bruce Lee.
American premium cable channel Cinemax are attached to the idea, which is described as a ‘passion project’ for Lin. We’re told that Lin may direct the pilot episode. Jonathan Tropper (co-creator of Banshee, a decent hit for Cinemax) has written said pilot.
The show – dubbed Warrior – has been inspired by Bruce Lee’s writings. We’re told that Bruce Lee spent ‘many years’ working on the idea before this death in 1973.
According to Cinemax, “Warrior is a gritty, action-packed crime drama set during the brutal Tong Wars of San Francisco’s Chinatown in the second half of the 19th century. The series 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).”
The series is executive produced by Lee’s daughter, Shannon, along with veteran TV and film producers Justin Lin (Fast & Furious) and Jonathan Tropper (co-creator of Banshee).
“I’ve always admired Bruce Lee for his trailblazing efforts opening doors for Asians in entertainment and beyond,” Lin explained. “So I was intrigued when Danielle told me about the urban legend of his never-produced idea for a TV show and suggested we bring it to life. Then, when Shannon [Lee] shared with us her father’s writings – rich with Lee’s unique philosophies on life, and through a point of view rarely depicted on screen – Danielle and I knew that Perfect Storm had to make it. Partnering with Cinemax has led to a wonderful collaboration with Jonathan Tropper, who has created a fantastic series inspired by Lee’s writings. We are all honored to continue what he started.”
