For TV dorks, AMC is a cable channel that just feels like home.
From great dramas like Breaking Bad, Mad Men, and Halt and Catch Fire to genre hits like Hell on Wheels, The Killing, and The Walking Dead, the channel has so much to offer fans of good television. You’d think AMC would have run out of interesting show ideas by now, but there’s a new series on the horizon that’s sure to check many boxes for fans of high concept TV: the post-apocalyptic martial arts drama Into the Badlands.
So what’s Into the Badlands all about? Here’s the official synopsis:
In a land controlled by feudal barons, Into the Badlands tells the story of a ruthless, well-trained warrior named Sunny (Daniel Wu) and a young boy named M.K. (Aramis Knight) who embark on a spiritual journey across a dangerous land. From AMC Studios, the six-part series is created by executive producers/showrunners/writers Alfred Gough and Miles Millar (Shanghai Noon, Smallville), and executive produced by Oscar-nominated producers Stacey Sher and Michael Shamberg (Pulp Fiction, Contagion), director David Dobkin (Wedding Crashers, Shanghai Nights), fight director Stephen Fung (Tai Chi Zero, House of Fury) and star Daniel Wu (Tai Chi Zero).
