New key art for AMC’s Into the Badlands
Another big new show coming to New York Comic Con is AMC‘s upcoming fall series Into the Badlands, starring Daniel Wu, which has just debuted new key art which you can see above! In addition to headlining, Wu also serves as an executive producer on the series, set to premiere Sunday, November 15 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.
Said to be a genre-bending martial arts series, Into the Badlands is very loosely based on the classic Chinese tale “Journey to the West.” In a land controlled by feudal barons, the series tells the story of a ruthless, well-trained warrior named Sunny (Wu) and a young boy who embark on a journey across a dangerous land to find enlightenment.
Emily Beecham (28 Weeks Later, The Village), Sarah Bolger (“The Tudors,” In America) and Oliver Stark (The Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box, My Hero) also star.
AMC has ordered six one-hour episodes. The project was created by writers/showrunners Al Gough and Miles Millar (Shanghai Noon, “Smallville”). They’ll serve as executive producers along with David Dobkin (The Judge, Wedding Crashers, Shanghai Knights), Oscar-nominated producers 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).
