If Warrior were made into a TV show, swapping Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton for Matt Lauria and Nick Jonas, you’d have Kingdom, a new series from DirecTV.
In the first trailer for Kingdom, we’re introduced to a family drama set in the world of mixed martial arts. At the center of it all is Warrior star Frank Grillo, who once again plays a trainer and the owner of a gym. Jonas stars as Grillo’s prize-fighting son, while Jonathan Tucker plays Jonas’ older, slightly darker brother. Friday Night Light’s Matt Lauria also comes into play as a fighter recently released on parole and trying to come back into their world.
Kingdom premiere October 8 at 9 p.m. on DirecTV.
