AMC has released a first look promo for its new TV series- "Into the Badlands."
The six-episode series is to premiere in fall 2015.
Daniel Wu plays the lead role named ‘Sunny’ in the kungfu drama.
Loosely based on the classic Chinese tale "Journey to the West," the series centers on a warrior and a young boy who embark on an adventure "across a dangerous land to find enlightenment," according to the network's release.
"Badlands" (working title) was created by writers/show runners Al Gough and Miles Millar ("Shanghai Noon," "Smallville"). The duo will act as executive producers along with Stacy Sher and Michael Shamberg ("Pulp Fiction," "Contagion") and master martial arts filmmakers Daniel Wu ("Tai Chi Zero") and Stephen Fung.
"This creative team has so much expertise in bringing a fresh take to classic genres from their film and television experience, and their take on martial arts will be no exception," read part of the statement from Joel Stillerman, AMC’s executive vice president of original programming, production and digital content. "Along with a beautiful story, they've also assembled the A-team of martial arts fight choreography in Daniel Wu and Stephen Fung.”
