Warrior

A gritty, sexy, violent new series, Warrior is a crime drama set during the brutal Tong Wars of San Francisco’s Chinatown in the latter part of the 19th Century. Inspired by the writings of the late Bruce Lee, the series follows Ah Sahm (Andrew Koji), a martial-arts prodigy who immigrates from China to San Francisco under mysterious circumstances and becomes a hatchet man for the Hop Wei, one of Chinatown’s most powerful tongs (Chinese organized crime families).

In the opening episode, as he searches for a woman who left China two years earlier, Ah Sahm crosses paths with Mai Ling and Li Yong, followers of the rival tong leader Long Zii, who is trying to avoid an opium war with the Hop Wei – a war that Walter Buckley, the deputy to San Francisco Mayor Samuel Blake, actively promotes.

Warrior – Tuesday at 9.00pm on Sky One.
