Everything about Into the Badlands feels like a gamble. It’s a martial-arts show set in a post-apocalyptic, almost steampunk future. It features long, complicated fight sequences that incorporate heavy wirework, a la wuxia films like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. It’s even the first time that network AMC has ordered an original show straight to series without seeing a pilot first. But for the show’s director of photography, Shane Hurlbut, these weren’t risks—they were opportunities.
