“Into the Badlands is a genre-bending martial arts series inspired by the classic Chinese tale Journey to the West. In a land controlled by feudal barons, Into the Badlands tells the story of a great warrior and a young boy who embark on a journey across a dangerous land to find enlightenment. After cities fall into ruins and survivors return to the fields, a new society forms where the strongest prosper and the weak serve.
A high-octane fantasy story filled with martial arts action and a “Tarantino” touch, this series is about an unlikely band of adventurers who embark on a quest through this futuristic world in search of a better life.”
Created by AMC Studios and written by the creators of hit drama Smallville Al Gough and longtime writing partner Miles Millar (Shanghai Noon, Spider-Man 2), who will also serve as show runners and executive producers. Into the Badlands stars Emily Beecham (28 Weeks Later), Marton Csokas (Lord of the Rings) and Daniel Wu (Europa report) and is set to air this fall
