Bruce Lee once had a dream to create a Warrior TV Series which Hollywood Destroyed. His daughter Shannon Lee has brought it back to life.
You can watch the show on HBO Max. The streaming service describes the show as Set during the brutal Tong Wars of San Francisco’s Chinatown in the second half of the 19th century, this gritty, action-packed series follows Ah Sahm, a martial arts prodigy who emigrates 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).
In 2000, according to Next Shark, Lee’s daughter, Shannon Lee, discovered her father’s long-forgotten pitch for a ’70s Warrior TV series about a Chinese martial artist traveling across the wild west of America.
“When I first took over for my mom in 2000, I was running the business from my house. My mom had sent the boxes down and I was keeping them in an off sight art storage facility. I would bring boxes home one or two at a time to go through. It was just me and my now ex-husband going through everything back then. We were a very small and truly family business. And in many ways, we still are.”Shannon Lee, Next Shark
