DIRECTOR JOHN WOO’S ACTION MOVIES TO WEEKLY TELEVISIONTelevision gets hotter this autumn with the premiere of John Woo's ONCE A THIEF , a sizzling one-hour syndicated adventure that brings the unique excitement of Hong Kong action films to weekly television.

Based on the critically acclaimed movie, John Woo's ONCE A THIEF tells the story of two young refugees from a criminal empire in Hong Kong. The series takes viewers into startling, cutting-edge worlds, fusing romance, action and humor, all in the signature style of John Woo, the man who broke down the wall between the action movie and the art film.
Brought up to be expert in all manner of physical and criminal skills -- everything from martial arts to superb abilities to con -- Mac Ramsey (Ivan Sergei - "Jack and Jill," "Touched By An Angel," "Dangerous Minds") and Li Ann Tsei (Sandrine Holt - "Black Robe," "New York Undercover," "The Outer Limits"), both in their mid-twenties, now use their expertise to fight crime in North America. Working with a former cop, Victor Mansfield (Nicholas Lea - "The X Files," "The Commish," "Lonesome Dove"), they are part of an elite law enforcement agency that takes on threats that are too powerful, protected, or unique for regular police forces. Complicating their relationship is an ongoing sexual tension among the three operatives.
John Woo’s ONCE A THIEF is produced by Alliance Atlantis and distributed by October Moon Television.
