Cinemax released the first teaser trailer for Warrior, the series based on an original idea by Bruce Lee. There’s not much to the tease but a good kung fu series is a welcomed sight to the crowded landscape of television.

About Warrior:
Inspired by an idea from martial-arts legend Bruce Lee, this gritty, action-packed crime drama is set during the brutal Tong Wars of San Francisco’s Chinatown in the second half of the 19th century. Filming in Cape Town, South Africa, it follows 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 organized crime families.

Warrior looks to hit Cinemax in 2019.
