‘Into the Badlands’: First Look at AMC’s Martial Arts Drama

AMC has released the first photos for “Into the Badlands,” its upcoming saga that stars Daniel Wu as a well-trained warrior who embarks on a journey across a dangerous land to find enlightenment. Accompanying him on his journey is a young boy named M.K. (Aramis Knight).

Into the Badlands” was created by writer-showrunners Al Gough and Miles Millar (“Shanghai Noon,” “Smallville”) and is based on the classic Chinese story “Journey to the West.” It stands as another example of TV’s martial arts-focused drama trend.

“I think there’s a great variety of martial arts that you can call on,” Gough told Variety last year, adding, “Oftentimes, it’s a fight that comes down to two characters, and television has an intimacy that really lends itself to that.”

The six-episode series bows later this year. It is currently filming in New Orleans. Gough and Miller serve as executive producers along with David Dobkin (“The Judge,” “Wedding Crashers,” “Shanghai Knights”), Stacey Sher and Michael Shamberg (“Pulp Fiction,” “Contagion”), and Stephen Fung and Wu (“Tai Chi Zero”).

From AMC Studios, “Into the Badlands” will be distributed internationally by Entertainment One Television (eOne).
