Two new Cinemax Original Series, “Warrior”, based on writings of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, and “Jett”, about a world-class thief, will premiere on Cinemax in April and June respectively.



Shot in Cape Town, South Africa, Warrior” is an action-packed crime drama set during the brutal Tong Wars of San Francisco’s Chinatown in the second half of the 19th century. The 10-episode drama series, executive produced by Jonathan Tropper and Justin Lin, premieres same time as the US on Saturday, April 6 at 9am exclusively on Cinemax. 

The series follows Ah Sahm (played by Andrew Koji), 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 organised crime family).

Another series “Jett” will premiere in June on Cinemax and stars Carla Gugino as worldclass thief Daisy “Jett” Kowalski. Fresh out of prison, she is forced back into doing what she does best, and a cast of morally ambivalent, dangerous and eccentric criminals, from budding femme fatales to compromised law enforcers, are determined to exploit her skills for their own ends.
