Series Synopsis: It’s 2012, and Bruce Lee never died. And he hasn't aged. But he has no idea who he is, what's happened in the world in the past 40 years, or why so many "thugs" want a piece of him. With the help of a fly BFF from the '70s, Joe Toomey, P.I., and pair of precocious teens, Bruce will find himself forced to do battle with both an enigmatic villain and his very own conscience. The Dragon rises... and "walks on" once more!
