Shannon Lee talks HBO's "Warrior" and reveals what drove dad Bruce Lee to greatness

Bruce Lee started writing the TV series “Warrior” nearly 50 years ago. At the time, the legendary martial artist and actor was rejected by American television networks for being Chinese. Now, Lee’s daughter is an executive producer of the series, which follows a martial arts prodigy and is now in its second season on Cinemax.

As the steward of her dad’s legacy and foundation, Shannon Lee opens up to Salon about her dad’s impact on entertainment and why “Warrior” is one of the most important shows for Asian representation, both in how it tells the story of the Chinatown Tong Wars and in its casting. "Warrior" Season 2 airs on Cinemax beginning Oct. 2, and both seasons will soon head to HBO Max.
