In 1971, Bruce Lee pitched a concept for a TV series called The Warrior, following a martial artist in the American Old West. But the project fell through and the idea has laid dormant since. But about four years ago, Fast & Furious director Justin Lin teamed up with Cinemax to bring Lee’s never-produced idea to life.
Now Lee’s dream has been realized in the form of the Cinemax TV series Warrior, which is loosely based on his original concept. Set in San Francisco’s Chinatown in the late 1800s, the series follows Ah Sahm (Andrew Koji), a martial artist who has immigrated from China and gets caught up in the Tong Wars taking over the city.
