This is a story about cheap immigrant labor, backstabbing profiteers, war-mongering politicians, deadly street wars, and mass backyard battles. "This is not China, it's Chinatown." And this is a classic American story that was based on the writings of kung-fu legend Bruce Lee.

Check out the final trailer for "Warrior," Cinemax's new 19th-century martial-arts series, which is executive produced by "Banshee" co-creator Jonathan Tropper, "Fast and Furious" director Justin Lin and Shannon Lee, daughter of Bruce Lee.

The ten-episode action drama, which takes place in 19th century San Francisco's Chinatown set against the back drop of the Tong Wars, a decades-long crime war between rival Chinese street gangs, came out of an old screenplay treatment that was written nearly 50 years ago by Bruce Lee himself.

London-born actor Andrew Koji (from Netflix's "The Innocents" and Starz's "American Gods") stars in the series as Ah Sahm, a Chinese immigrant and skilled martial-arts fighter who travels to America for a better life, only to fall in with a powerful Chinese criminal syndicate.

Co-starring Olivia Cheng (Deadly Class), Jason Tobin (The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift), and Hoon Lee (Banshee) with Tom Weston-Jones (Copper) and Christian McKay (Me and Orson Welles), "Warrior: Season 1" is due to premiere this Friday, April 5th on Cinemax.
